The households will be testing smart washing machines and dryers that can send messages to TVs, computers, and cell phones telling you things like your wash is done or your dryer is still on. You can even use your cell phone to start up the dryer again—something I wish I had the other day when I was out on my bike and my dryer was wrestling with a particularly thick duvet cover. (BTW, that picture is of a random Whirlpool washer/dryer, not the super-awesome set theyre testing.)
