SpinCycle on the Discovery Channel


When reporters from the Discovery Channel Canada came over to film James Dyson’s new ideas factory they also took the opportunity to find out all about the SpinCycle project. Both features were part of the Daily Planet ‘Garage Guru’s’ inventors slot. You can see both features via the following link:

First Impressions Continued…



“A very innovative concept”






“I love your spin cycler – I would like one in Oxford to attach to my own bike.”

First Impressions

I sent some messages out to several charities to get some feedback on the SpinCycle.

Here’s some of the responses I received…




“I am the Chair person of MAD4Africa and I received your email about your cycle invention (which I thought was brilliant)”


“Your product looks very interesting!

WaterAid utilises solutions that are low cost and sustainable, and this certainly touches upon these criteria”



“Wow what a great idea!…

I’m sure your project would be taken on well in India and all of the options could work”






“fun and certainly useful!”



“This is a great idea, I can see our volunteers using this sort of machines in our orphan centres.”





“Great idea!”
