An article in Tuesday’s Wall Street Journal featured some cool technology from a few of the major producers of residential washers and dryers. Newer generations of laundry appliances utilize high-end LCD touchscreen interfaces to control their myriad of features, cycles, and options. We have several similar projects we’re working on right now.
The article showcases products from Whirlpool, Bosch, Sears, LG, Kenmore, and GE. And at upwards of $4,000 a pair, some of the appliances provide some amazing technology. A few cool features mentioned:
-Our favorite: the latest generation of appliances feature LCD touch screen displays that make controlling the appliance easy. Closer to a smartphone than washers of old. Click here to see some examples of Altia technology embedded in washers and dryers. (Click on Demos)
-One product includes a feature “that allows consumers to do small loads of laundry overnight and have them ready by morning.”
-GE’s Steam Washer can remove so much moisture they are “ready to wear without putting in the dryer.” Genius.
