Doing laundry can be quite energy intensive. The Drumi washing machine is powered by a foot-pedal, and was created by the Toronto company Yirego Corp. It hasn’t hit the market yet, as they are working on streamlining it, and making it easier to use.
Yi Jiang is the founder of the company and the one behind the idea of the Drumi – he anticipates that it will be really popular in high density cities such as Tokyo or Hong Kong. Jiang is hoping to eventually create a different models: one on wheels, a solar powered one, and a more compact one. But for now they are focusing on getting this product out to consumers!
This is a great invention, and I look forward to hearing how the Drumi works! I definitely hope they make a compact one that is solar powered.. it would be great on a sailboat!
