英媒:中国大学生发明健身和洗衣两用车

如果你有大量的家务要做、衣服要洗,那么你根本就抽不出时间来做运动,但是这个新发明意味着你根本没有理由不运动出出汗。中国设计师开发了一种叫做脚踏车洗衣机的产品,即在前轮安装了一个洗衣机滚桶。所以在骑行时,脚踏板的移动就会引起圆桶旋转,从而达到传统洗衣机的效果。脚踏车里还安装了一个发电机,可用来发电,可以把这些电量存储起来以备不时之需。这个设计团队来自大连民族大学,他们没有说明这款自行车能否自动装水和排水。

Now THAT'S aspin cycle! Exercise bike washes your dirty laundry as you pedal

滚筒车!一边骑健身车一边洗衣服

Finding thetime to exercise when you've got heaps of housework - and laundry - piling upcan be difficult, but this piece of gym kit means you've got no excuse not towork up a sweat.

如果你有大量的家务要做、衣服要洗,那么你根本就抽不出时间来做运动,但是这个新发明意味着你根本没有理由不运动出出汗。

Chinesedesigners have developed an contraption called the Bike Washing Machine thatcontains a washing machine drum in its front wheel.

中国设计师开发了一种叫做脚踏车洗衣机的产品,即在前轮安装了一个洗衣机滚桶。

When ridden,the pedalling motion causes the drum to rotate, churning your clothes insidelike a traditional washer.

所以在骑行时,脚踏板的移动就会引起圆桶旋转,从而达到传统洗衣机的效果。

A generator inside the bike also creates electricity which can be stored forfuture use.

脚踏车里还安装了一个发电机,可用来发电,可以把这些电量存储起来以备不时之需。

The designers,based at Dalian Nationalities University,do not say whether the bike will automatically fill and drain with water too.

这个设计团队来自大连民族大学,他们没有说明这款自行车能否自动装水和排水。

Instead, the detergent and water may need to be added and then drained beforemore water being added for a rinse cycle.

相反,需要添加洗洁剂和水,再排干,然后加入更多的水来进行冲洗。

They say,however, that the device could be a solution for those who want both a washingmachine and an exercise bike but cannot find space for both.

但他们说对于那些既想拥有健身车又想拥有洗衣机但又没有足够空间容纳二者的人来说是个解决办法。

Alternativelyit could also help shave a few pounds off your electricity bill by using pedalpower to do the laundry.

而且通过骑行的方式来洗衣服还能减少你的电费。

The invention could also find use in remote areas where people do not haveaccess to reliable supplies of electricity.

这个设备还能在偏远的没有稳定电力供应的地方使用。

Students atthe university are now building a prototype of the machine.

这所大学的学生们正在建造这种机器的原型机。

The groupsubmitted the design onto the website Tuvie,which allows designers to sharetheir ideas.

这个团体将自己的设计提交到了Tuvie网站,该网站能让设计者和别人分享自己的设计理念。

They said:'Riding a bike is a popular exercise, washing laundry is something that youmight do on daily basis or at least once a week, unless you keep buying newclothes and underwear, so why not combine them into a single usefulequipment/appliance?

他们说:“健身车是很流行的健身方式,而洗衣服你可能每天都得洗或者至少一周洗一次,除非你不断购买新的衣服和内裤,所以为什么不把这两种东西合二为一呢?”

'Bike Washing Machine combines a stationary bicycle and washing machine, youcan exercise while at the same time simultaneously washing your clothes.

“脚踏车洗衣机将健身车和洗衣机结合在一起,你就可以一边锻炼一边洗衣服。”

'When you ridethis bike, the pedalling motion causes the drum of the washing machine torotate, at the same time, the superfluous electricity is generated which can beused to power the display screen or stored for future use.'

“当你开始运动时,脚踏板的移动可以促使洗衣机的滚筒旋转,与此同时还能发电,可以将这些电量提供给显示屏幕或者储存起来未来再使用。”

It is not thefirst time cycling and the weekly wash have been combined.

但这并非脚踏车和洗衣机的首次结合。

In 2011Richard Hewitt, a design student at Sheffield Hallam University,announced he had developed a similar device that washes and dries clothes usingpedal power.

2011年,雪菲尔哈伦大学的设计系学生RichardHewitt宣布自己设计出了一种类似的装置,可利用脚踏产生的动力来洗衣服和晾衣服。
