LG Electronics Washer/Dryer Remote


From LG Electronics, the company that brought us the world's first internet refrigerator, comes the Remote Monitoring Laundry System (above).

The concept: monitor your laundry cycles from anywhere in your home.

The remote displays what stage the laundry is in and how much time is left in the cycle.

Why don't I feel more excited about this?

Maybe I'm just a Luddite after all, ya think, notwithstanding all this chatter here about Luna and Repliee Q1 and the coming singularity?

I don't know: I mean, I'm trying to lose remotes, not gain more.

The LG system will run you $1,349 for the washer, $949 for the dryer and an additional $99 for the remote monitor.

Jeez, you'd have thought they'd have thrown in the remote at those prices; I mean, you get a remote with a $29 TV from Kroger.

What do I know about stuff like this, anyway; I should stick to my knitting.

Hey, wait a minute — I just had a great idea for Version 2.0 of LG's system: LaundryCam.

Genius, if I do say so myself.

A camera looks at the front of the machines and transmits the image — in real time, of course — to your remote.

That way if the movie or game you're watching gets boring you can watch your laundry instead.

And when friends call and ask what you're doing you won't have to fib when you reply, like you have in the past, "Oh, just keeping an eye on the wash."
