    I made a Renewable energy powered clothes dryer but theres more to consider than you think....
    I made this as I'm hosting "Pitch the Future" the Virtual event being run buy the Shell Eco Marathon team as normal events this year have been affected by the Pandemic.

      Now this is a very Low Tech approach to green energy but its always good to start simple and who knew about the washing machine door shape being so important lol. What other green projects would you like to see as this has got me thinking, Theres some great pitches from the teams with energy from falling rain aero efficient Traffic sequencing and different materials to improve batteries so hope this completion helps these things become a reality.

      A little bit simplistic approach to given problem but decent realisation of the project. I suppose the over theatrical ( for my taste) appearance is supposed to attire more audience.

      I just went ahead and used this really amazing thing called a clothesline.. and surprisingly all the laundry was dry in a few hours.

      Air and water displacement powered air compressor driven turbine drum with piezioelectric plates to catch energy from the spinning that put the extra needed to use a small amount of the air flow to power the air and water displacement generator ....maybe even a levitating liquid pendulum washing machine built into the air and water displacement generator Like archamedes sphere was ment for Ferroelectric polymer shock absorbing springs on acrylic axles with cloth in the brackets to catch the static with tinfoil capacitor A spherical gyroscopic version would be cool Free energy Like bubbling water to compress air Compressed air can be added to water to cut through pretty much anything too Water jets dont wear like saw blades do All without even needing electricity or batteries These are a few of my free energy upgrades Awesome vids furzey boy cracking contraptions created What about holographic projector shades using water vapor so nothing touches the face Vapor density regulation acting like polarized lenses helmholz resonator gyroscopic antigravity supercapacitor ionic acoustic hoverboard would be cool

      Isn't that what clothes lines are for collin 🤣 put em out in the sun to dry

    20. Decimus64

      Or you could just get a solar panel and wire it up to a normal tumble dryer... just a suggestion...

    21. Kaxor

      Furze, please tell me what you can't build.

    22. Hussain Mulla Ahmed

      my mom needs that...

    23. Remco M

      There's a slug falling from your clothes on 11:19. Maybe something to think about when building an outdoor dryer without any door.

    24. André Holmberg

      A convection drier driven by just solar heat would be so much simpler and cheaper.

    25. Joey isamazing

      That didn’t solve any of the problems a clothesline has. You still have to take your clothes outside and then bring them back in, it still takes a full day, and it only works on warm windy days.

    26. Reckluse Music

      For some reason KGup unsubbed me from you? I wondered why I wasn't seeing new stuff!

        I hate that this happens

    27. levi levis

      Hey Colin! I don't fully expect you to notice a comment on a month old video, but I just wanted to say I think this is a great idea, and I'm no expert, but thinking of my own clothes drier that I use, the air usually blows in from the back or through all the small holes punctured in the barrel itself. In this specific configuration, most of the air would leak out rather than pass through the clothes, since there's no door to isolate it, but you noticed that yourself of course. Secondly, most driers have inwards-facing fins that portrude from the barrel, creating slight "steps" that the clothes hang onto for an additional second before they drop back down, this would bring the clothes closer to the fan, as well as make them fall back down to the bottom while the other clothes are being brought up, creating more of a tumbling chain of motion, since your dryer seemed to have a lot of the clothes slide around the bottom for the most part, since there wasn't enough friction to drag them up at all, which might explain why the thicker clothes weren't drying, since heavier objects tend to stick to the bottom of a pile. That's just my two cents of course, I'm no expert. Cheers mate!

      1. colinfurze

        your right but this was a test mainly of the wind and solar parts firstly, theres lots of things to improve so will revise it at some point

    28. mike allen

      Use the wind and solar to charge battery banks to run a tumble dryer.. But Where's the fun in that

    33. AshtrayAnnie

      Why put a fan in when you could have put an electric heater....This is the reason engineers are still making revisions after projects are 90% complete.

      You say: "Clothes Dryer" I say: Much needed soil sifter, plz

    39. 走氣汽水

      Wait a sec, did you do a compare test on just hanging them outside in the sun?

    40. Omesh Persaud

      If you could insulate it then you'd have a perfect machine that could make ice cream for you without using electricity

      As is often said, if it's stupid and works, it's not stupid is it?

      Colin, you need a taller tower for your windmill.

    43. MyEconomics101

      This is the worst reinvention of the wheel. And who needs a tumble dryer if you can air dry it on a clothes horse.

    44. Almir Mededovic

      Try putting a heating element in front or back of the fan

      That clothes drier is a thing of beauty, surely there is a market for a lovely refined version even if it is just solar.

      The 'Wind/Solar Powered Clothes Dryer' has already been invented. It's called a '#WashingLine'. 👍🏻😂

      1. Goatlips

        ...No, I did not check the previous comments. Also - I was impressed by the creation - definitely easier than a washing line, albeit considerably more expensive to make (especially if you only have cutlery for tools to begin with).

    50. Ghozer

      Can anyone calculate how many times he would have to use it / how long for, to re-gain the energy used while building the thing? ;)

    51. Luxray Lloyd

      Mr Bean also did something similar (Or at least, the animated show)

    59. Tony Miller

      Now grab a black hose, put it a wooden box with glass and make sure it's a coil with plenty of length in this box. Put this box somewhere under the sun, blow air from one side, get warm air on the other.

    60. Aaaa aaAa

      This isn't colin, where is his tie?

    61. Keith Youngblood

      Colin Furze has burned and blown up so much stuff that there is no amount of laundry dried by the wind in the known universe to offset this. LOL #climatechangeisfake

      You could also hang your clothes and dry it with wind and solar just as well...

      just put the Clothes on and they will dry up

      But Colin! Perspex plastic isn’t eco friendly!

      Once again solar power beats the pants off of wind - cheaper, simpler, more reliable and just plain more powerful. For the money and time into the turbine you could buy a couple more panels, though I realize half the fun is the build here. I consider adding a wind turbine to my solar array occasionally, but always remember that it's rarely worth it on a residential scale. Utility scale wind is a different story.

      I made my own version of this. Took me months:

    86. pigtailsboy

      Feel like concentrated solar into a temperature battery you could use to help heat and power the process would have worked better than straight solar. Good not to waste the wind though. If you can get the sun to run hot enough maybe getting the wind and solar and which-what every to build up speed on a fly wheel to better tumble the laundry. Steady as she goes but a modern drier does have some advantages. Don't see a lot of fly wheel reliant projects online. Suppose it's a bit outside the ability of most hobbyists to craft and perfect... some day, somewhere, somehow.

      Hi Colin

    94. J Fr55man

      im sorry, but a piece of string is a wind and solar powered clothes drying machine. its centuries old and costs basically nothing... probably does a better job

    95. call me ronald

      Add a heating coil to the fan and this may be a feasible method of drying, if you don't need something instantly dry.

    96. BrokenBridges

    97. Roshan Dash

      Why not just dry them outside in the sun on a cloth line?
