It's time to ditch your silly old-fashioned washing machine and its silly old-fashioned dials and buttons, because there's a new Samsung washing machine in town. The new Samsung WW9000 washing machine is smart, perhaps even smarter than you when it comes to the whole washing of clothes thing. It does away with the buttons and dials of a more traditional washer for a touch screen that lets you select from many more washing modes, plus a bevy of sensors that aim to make the washing process even smarter.
Not only can you select from a wide range of wash cycles to handle specific types of soiled garments (and here I was thinking that the only useful choices were between a full or small load and hot or cold water), but you can control the WW9000 through your smartphone. Because why not? That smartphone integration will send you "notifications on the remaining cycle-time and when the wash is complete." It's not unlike LG's text your washing machine feature.
The smartest part might just be the "Auto Optimal Wash" setting. You just shove in your clothes and tell the machine to get washing — it uses sensors to determine the size and how dirty your clothes are, and then does everything else automatically. It even has a built-in detergent reserve that's supposedly good for up to a month of washing form which it will dispense only the amount of detergent that is needed.
The Samsung WW9000 cannot, however, stop you from putting a red shirt into a hot wash with all of your whites, turning them into pinks.
What do you think — is a connected washing machine in your future?
