Inventor Unveils 'Human Car Wash' He Spent Three Years Creating
There are few among us haven't at some point looked at a car wash and thought, 'Ooooh I wouldn't mind running through that for a daft laugh'... Or is that just me?
Well, now you can actually enjoy the car wash experience without being pummelled by high-powered bristles and hoses designed for the cleaning of vehicles.
This is all thanks to a Finnish inventor, who has spent three years working on a 'human car wash'.
The brilliantly-named 'Humanwash' works much like a car wash and means people don't need to waste time and energy scrubbing themselves.
But while the contraption may be perfect for those who have always wondered what being car washed would feel like, it was actually designed with the more important purpose of helping people with mobility problems.
In the above very sexy video, you can see the motor-powered rotating brush in action, which moves up and down automatically, just like a car wash.
Engineer, Matti Paaso, said he decided to set about creating the machine after being shocked to discover that such a thing didn't already exist.
The 70-year-old said: "It took me more than three years and four different prototypes to get this right. I couldn't find anything like this when I was doing my research on YouTube.
"It is fitted with two motors which control the rotating brush and the vertical movement of the brush. It also has an emergency stop button and automatically stops after 15 minutes.
"I designed it for people who have mobility issues, or are injured or are older and struggle to shower themselves."
The Humanwash can be operated by foot pedals or buttons on the side of the device, meaning it can be operated differently depending on one's mobility problem.
Mr Paaso added that the machine can get you clean in just a couple of minutes and had received rave reviews when trialled in a hospital.
He said: "It could be a very useful tool in a hospital or for care providers, it only uses the same amount of space as a normal shower.
"The user can wash their entire body in two or three minutes, but as the brushes are designed for a gentle massage the normal washing time is about 10 minutes.
"One of the prototypes was trialled in a hospital for one month and they loved it."
However, if you aren't hospitalised but fancy the ultimate lazy shower, you can get one for yourself for £4,100... Though if you don't have a mobility issue but do want to spend £4,100 on your own Humanwash, then you have too much money/need to reappraise your life.
