Not often that I have appliance envy, but I do. This is something that is a year or two old in Japan already and pretty freakin’ neat. Basically it’s a washer/dryer that works like a dishwasher would: first washes and then dries that same load of laundry, all in the same compact sized bin. Meanwhile Americans finally decided to design a paint can that has a drip free spout and a twist off cap. And people wonder why we’re not always ahead of the innovation curve.
