An Email From the Laundry Machine
Sanyo Electric Techno Clean has developed a laundry system that allows coin operated machines in launderettes to send email to users when, for example, their washing is over.
Users can also know the location and availability of the laundries via mobile phone or PC.
Owners are provided with information such as the work rates of their washing machines, when to refill supplies, and sales figures. They are also notified by email when a machine is out of order and if a machine breaks down during use; the owner can provide the user with access to another machine by remote control.
Don't worry if you love to hang around in launderettes, waiting for Mr Right to come and exchange washing tips with you, the system will first be implemented in Japan.
