- The SpinCycle can be fitted to a bike easily and can wash clothes in 10 minutes.
- The bike is aimed at people in developing countries who have to wash clothes by hand.
- The SpinCycle folds up when not in use so that the bicycle can still be ridden as normal.
The SpinCycle is a portable washing machine that attaches to almost any bicycle.
It was created by Rich Hewitt, he came up with the idea when in Burundi. While he was there he had to wash huge amounts of clothes by hand and wanted to find a better solution.
The bicycle is fully usable with a SpinCycle attached, and everything needed for washing clothes can be carried in the drum.
When needed the device rotates into place and the drum detaches so it can be filled. The drum is fitted with a paddle that helps the washing process.
Rich claims the SpinCycle saves both time and water.
