GiraDora is a project to build a washing machine with a pedal system for only $40. It allows populations who do not have access to electricity to wash and dry their clothes more quickly with a bet
It allows populations who do not have access to electricity to wash and dry their clothes more quickly with better posture. Generally, it takes six hours to wash laundry in bent over positions that leads to back problems.
By sitting on the machine and pedalling, washing is done quickly in better position. As well, when using this system, the washer’s hands are free to do other things.
This project makes washing machines accessible at an affordable price and reduces washing time considerably. As well, there is a business potential for families who want to open their own laundromats or lend washing m
The first phases of development will target South America, then India. GiraDora has many benefits and opportunities including: saving time, consuming less water, improved comfort and safety, business opportunities.
This project was the inspiration of two design students, Alex Cabunoc and Ji A You.
