Cloudwash: the connected washing machine from BERG on Vimeo.
London-based tech visionaries Berg have prototyped a washing machine that can order detergent, time a spin cycle to finish just as its owner arrives home, and be operated by app or interface, so that guests can use it too.
In a blog post detailing the project, Berg explain their frustration at the functionality of connected objects so far. "Connectivity holds out promise for something really new, these machines can become something actually different. Cloudwash is an expression of our thoughts on how to make this stuff matter and some steps to something better."
