This Japanese Company Is Working on a Human Washing Machine

(Thanks to Ralph, who says “No spin cycle?”)

(insert wife joke here)

In the US, we call that a "shower".

Just climb into your toilet and flush. Rinse and repeat.

The sad part is they're just modifying a traditional washing machine by adding a much bigger door, but if they can eliminate the wrinkles they may be on to something.

Ralph, I'm reminded of a "Calvin and Hobbes" strip where Calvin went through the spin cycle with Hobbes.

I bet you have to use a lot of bleach to feel really clean.

That contraption is a covered Jacuzzi. >yawn<

"Sensors inside the washing machine will measure the state of sympathetic and parasympathetic nerves, and the built-in AI will use the collected data to create the most comfortable atmosphere possible."

So where is the Human Dryer Machine?
Will it have a lint trap?

@Rod -- I don't remember Calvin getting in the washer or dryer with Hobbes, but I do remember a Sunday strip where he was daydreaming about his future self where a robot plucked him out of bed and deposited him into the Boy-O-Matic for washing and dressing.

I heard the Iranian market test did not go well. Need to line up some more volunteers if we want that export license to go through.
