Drumi foot-powered washing machine in production at last

• By Paul Ridden

Now, after some design tweaks, the foot-powered mini washing machine is rolling off the production line ahead of shipping in the coming months.

Yirego says its Drumi clothes washing device has been over 10,000 hours in development, and has undergone a number of key design changes since we covered it almost 3 years ago. The drum now sports a handle so that it can be removed for cleaning, for example, and the curved handle on the device itself not only allows for one-handed transport, but also serves as a lock to keep the lid secure during a wash. The production Drumi is also slightly shorter than the earlier prototype, at 16.4 inches (416 mm) tall.
