Washing machine for the future

It uses 96% less water than a comparable model. Read about it here. For example:

The Aqua Loop water-saving technology uses 96% less water than an equivalent Sanyo washer from just a decade ago, while still working like a washing machine. The three-in-one machine not only washes but also dries clothes and recycles water. Manager Koji Nobuchi says the new Sanyo machines were designed to recognize the global wastewater management problem. The machine doesn’t need water to sterilize or deodorize clothes and recycles bath water, using a filtration system.

The drum-style machines converts air to ozone to eliminate bacteria and odor, a process previously used only in commercial washing machines like those in hospitals with ozone-generating machines. But Sanyo is now packaging the technology for household use. Water is purified using a recycling process. The ozone washes away bacteria, which can lead to smells, and dirt.
