Exercise AND Wash Laundry With This Eco-Friendly Bicycle

The Bike Washing Machine is a human-powered washing machine that encourages you to multitask and conserve water while boosting your fitness. It was designed by students at Dalian Nationalities University in China.The pedals help spin and rotate the front wheel, which is actually a clothing drum. Any excess energy created by burning off calories is used to power a display screen that keeps the cyclist aware of the wash cycle’s progress.

I wonder how much pedalling it would take me to complete a wash cycle.  If I couldn't finish a load in one session it wouldn't be very useful.
