The lockdown due to the Coronavirus pandemic brought a halt to most workplaces, with offices largely functioning from home. This translated into household chores going hand-in-hand with tasks at work - leaving time for little else. But what if we told you there was a way to exercise while simultaneously finishing your tasks at home? A recent video that surfaced on social media showed how a woman was grinding wheat flour from raw wheat kernels with the help of a bicycle. Take a look:
The video was shared on Twitter by user Awanish Sharan, who sourced it from social media. The interesting machine's video went viral and garnered over 667k views and counting.
The lady in the video was seated atop a cycling machine which was attached to a manually operated flour grinder. Each rotation of the cycle set into motion a wheel which further helped the grinder to convert fresh wheat into a finely ground flour. As per the commentary in the video, the innovative setup could also be used to grind pulses and rice. The device thus allowed the user to get kill two birds with one stone - exercise the legs and make wheat flour for household use.
Several thousand users poured in their reactions and comments to the unique apparatus. While some praised the creativity of the person who thought of this, others wanted it to be patented and made commercially available. Take a look at some of the reactions:
