Boy I wish we had these when I was in college. I don’t miss continually walking to and from the laundry room or just sitting in those loud, hot rooms waiting for my laundry to finish. Maytag is testing out some new connected washers and dryers at a Wheelock College.
These washers and dryers can e-mail and text you when they’re done. Better yet, the whole roomful of machines is Web-ified, and you can see if (and which) machines are free and/or in use.
