The Korean company has filed for a US patent on it. I really can’t explain it better than this:
The design for a machine with a built-in MP-3 player and speakers “is just a concept art but we have the technology to produce a washing machine that makes little noise,” LG Electronics spokesman Kim Hyung-Jong told AFP late Monday. South Koreans are addicted to gadgets, some of them seemingly pointless. The concept of a musical washtub has been ridiculed in the United States, Kim admitted.
RIDICULED? I find that hard to believe.
