The Cyclean pedal-powered washer dryer, developed by Alex Gadsden, lets you get fit while cleaning your dirty laundry. Your pedaling spins the internal washer chamber, and so the machine could be used in the developing world, where electricity to power 60-degree spin cycles isn't exactly a priority.
Alex was going around scrap yards, local dumps, and could not believe how much was being wasted. So he thought about trying to make something out of waste washing machines.
Floods play a havoc in the state of Bihar. In the year 1975, Champaran was heavily flooded for about 3 weeks. Saibdulla had to cross the river to get daily provisions. To cross the river he used boat and in the city he rode the bicycle.
