Its name is Wheel and it is a washing machine and a treadmill at the same time, that uses human kinetic power to run. This innovative concept has been presented at the Electrolux Design Lab 2014 by the Korean designer Si Hyeong Ryu: this year the competition focuses on the theme “Creating Healthy Homes”. The power generated from the spinning can be used to wash clothes and the unused power can be saved to be used as electricity in the future. The washing balls inside the product shorten the washing time, reducing the quantity of needed water. Besides, Wheel has a flexible display and a solar panel that substitutes the man power when it is not available.
