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.
Check out the Live pitches from student teams trying to solve real world problems and reduce Co2 emissions in 4 sectors here www.makethefuture.shell/en-gb/shell-eco-marathon/2021-programme/virtual-programme-2021/pitch-the-future

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.

@United Space Pirates thats a really stupid idea. 1- pipe pressure is a huge problem. 2- electrolysis also produces oxygen, the entire pipe system could blow up. 3- it would waste a lot of energy for something that gravity already does for free, since as you know, water can be accelerated but cant be compressed, the only result of adding pressure to a cities water pipes is something blowing up or bursting. a similar thing and better thought is beeing implemented in europe, they use wood chips to generate electricity, and the surplus electricity is stored by using electrolysis to generate hydrogen as fuel to be burned at any time. but anyways, this comment feed aint the way to discuss all this as all other users will get spammed with notifications, so on my part this will be my last message on this comments section, Happy Holidays random internet human.

@United Space Pirates are you american or what? those people contaminate a lot, here Cantabria people like collecting plastics from the beaches that the sea bring, also europe will ban single use plastics on 2021. www.europarl.europa.eu/news/en/press-room/20190321IPR32111/parliament-seals-ban-on-throwaway-plastics-by-2021#:~:text=On%20Wednesday%2C%20Parliament%20approved%20a,in%20the%20EU%20by%202021%3A&text=Plastic%20straws also, humans aint efficient in any way, with genetic engineering we could turn our hair and skin to be green and use sunlight like plants so sunbathing would have a meaning then, or just becoming cyborgs.
United Space Pirates
@Sergio Solórzano BTW, adding a bit of electrolysis to a few kilometers of pipe full of water can pressurize the water enough to turn an electric generator with the pressure generated by the hydrogen expansion far better than steam pressure. We are trying to help your species advance from where you are to where you should already be.
United Space Pirates
@Sergio Solórzano perhaps your species will survive, perhaps not. Regardless, please experiment with cheaper higher velocity powersouce systems. Increasing the voltage acting upon plasma also provides surplus power according to the same kinetic energy therum. Please stop polluting you eco system.

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

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.

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!

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

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

...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).

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.

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.

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.
