Internet Washing Machine
from LG Electronics
by Rick Smith (February 1, 2001)


LG Electronics has created a washing machine that can download new wash-cycles (i-@ble programs) from the Internet. Now you more easily clean and care for your garments since you will be able to tailor the wash cycle to the particular garment and your preferences. The LGE Internet Washing Machine also:

  • uses a 4.2 inch LCD touch panel to control operation and for Internet access

  • has 4 Mbit of flash memory

  • will soon be able to be controlled and monitored from a remote location

  • features a data cable connection mounted in the front for easier access

    Using what I call a “tub forward” design, the LGE Internet Washing Machine achieves better washing performance while lowering energy consumption. By tilting the washing drum forward by 12 degrees, vibration and noise are eliminated . Further benefits are a 30 percent decrease in water consumption, 25 percent decrease in power consumption and a 34 percent increase in washing performance. With all these benefits, I’m surprised this wasn’t done years ago.

    The LGE Internet Washing Machine has 107 patents, will be available in December 2001 and retails for about 1,500 dollars.
