Futuristic Appliances: Transparent Washing Machine

by Blogger on ‎01-21-2013 03:33 PM

Screen Shot 2013-01-21 at 3.01.14 PM.pngAt CES 2013, Haier showed off its concept product, the transparent washing machine.  Is this a sign of our future? Or is this an appliance design that you don’t want to see in your laundry room?


Now, if you have a preference towards spacecraft, you might find this washing machine very amusing. Not only can you see-through its cover and witness technology that assembles this appliance together. It also uses neon lighting to give it a bright glow while spinning your dirty clothes. Your laundry room can turn into a disco dance party. Since doing laundry is deemed a dreaded household task, this Haier washing machine can help change the mood. Don’t you think?  


Last year, Haier presented the transparent TV, which probably didn’t receive a popular vote.  Would you buy a see-through washing machine?


I have to say, this concept product could provide you a stronger appreciation towards the engineering and parts that make it very easy for you too wash your dirty clothes. And I thank the robots of the ease.


Who knows when the company would say yes to producing this concept product for consumer purchase? For now, there are some great washer and dryer sets to choose at Future Shop.


Each manufacture has its own technology to enhance your laundry experience. For example, LG supports the Mega Capacity Steam washer and dryer with TurboWash technology. This product will save you up to 20 minutes on each full-size load without sacrificing the cleaning performance. Plus, they have a feature called The Allergiene cycle, which removes over 95% of common household allergens, such as dust mites and pet dander.


Samsung’s washer and dryers emphasizes two technology features: SpeedSpray and PowerFoam. SpeedSpray helps to cut your normal cycle time by up to 15 minutes because of the cleansing jets shoots water and dissolves detergent directly onto clothes so that the cleaning begins faster. The PowerFoam technology helps to dissolve the detergent the turns into robust foam that penetrates into the fabrics more efficiently. Some of Samsung’s washers have LCD panel that can communicate with the Samsung Smart Control App from your mobile phone.

This washer sets a new standard for innovation, convenience, and stylish appearance. It includes state-of-the-art features like Power Foam, which evenly distributes detergent and removes deeper stains, and Vibration Reduction Technology Plus, which keeps the machine quiet and helps to balance loads so the drum keeps spinning smoothly.

This 7.5 cu. ft. electric steam dryer is so smart it deserves a diploma.

Does having a clear washing machine make it cheaper?  I guess it's like "see through underwear"... you know what you purchased.
