As you can see from the pictures, the b.w.m. combines spinning with washing your laundry. So now, you can get your exercise AND do your chores at the same time.

The bicycle wheel is used for the drum of the washing machine.

By combining a stationary bicycle with a washing machine the rider uses their pedaling motion to rotate the drum of the washing machine. Extra electricity is generated that can be used to power the rider’s display screen or it can even be stored for future use.
