Exercise Makes Laundry Even Less Fun (But More Eco-Friendly)

Would you ride an exercise bike to power your washing machine? Electronics company Haier has developed a prototype of a bike that can wash a full load of laundry (with cold water, which is more energy-efficient) using energy generated by 20 minutes of you on a stationary bike.

We already hate doing laundry, and we can imagine heaps piling up if we actually had to exercise in order to get the dirty task done. But then again, we'd be multitasking and spreading good environmental vibes. So would you be into a pedal-powered washer?
