LG Patents MP3-playing Washing Machine

The next time you go shopping for a new washer, you may care to inquire about LG’s upcoming washing machine that can play MP3s. LG has just patented the world’s first MP3-playing washing machine and I’m sure anyone who, you know, washes their clothing is jumping for joy.

Why such a big deal? Go do some laundry and listen to the machine for a few minutes. That droning, loud, obnoxious sound gets old real fast. LG’s washing machines will have you rocking out to Dire Straits in no time. Too bad the price will probably exceed the $3000-mark. If that’s too expensive for you, grab a guitar and start rocking out in the laundry room.
