Geek Washing Machine Sends Techie Reminders

by Alisha K.

If you’re the type to put clothes into the wash and then forget to take them out again, there may just be a solution. Too busy mucking about in the living room to remember your clothes? No problem; there’s an alarm that sounds, annoyingly, as a reminder. Can’t tear yourself away from the computer? No problem; the machine sends messages to Twitter, too.

Ryan Rose apparently thinks (correctly so, in my case) that the rest of us are similarly forgetful, and thus put together a helpful video showing what the modifications to his washing machine took.

    This is a product that I would find very useful. I never remember the laundry. Ever.

    Needlessly overcomplicated. Doesn’t every washer have a buzzer that you can turn on to tell you when clothes are done? If so, just tap into that circuit.

    Most dryers have buzzers, but not washers, in my experience!

    This is very creative idea… I like this tweak. Now wash machines could be made with twitter option included in them. That would rise up the price and sales!

      Economics 101 says you raise the price, sales fall. Thanks for playing.
