Oh the Possibilities

Library TechBytes: Wet, Dry & Wireless

Very interesting development in the world of laundry (thanks to Helene from Library TechBytes for this link). I can only imagine the wonder of being able to check on the status of my laundry on my cell phone, laptop or tv. Oh, but wait, my father taught me never to leave the washer or dry on when I wasn’t home. The fact that our dryer’s timing mechanism kicked the bucket, the dryer overheated and almost caught fire reinforced this notion. Also, would it move the clothes from the washer to the dryer when they are clean? Would it fold the clothes after they are dry?

Will it fly? I have no idea. But, I can see some uses for this – to spy on loved ones to see if they have done their chores while one is away. Or, friends could have parties where they have their washers and dryers compete to see whose finishes first. Hhmmmm!!  Some interesting possibilities!!

  1. wow, you definitely had to watch the dryer. It sounds like your family was as thrifty as mine. My Dad would never buy anything new unless it completely melted to the floor. 🙂

    Very true! I guess it all worked out fine for us since the dryer lasted for about 25 years!!!
