LG launches AI-powered washing machine at CES

Laundry will never feel like a chore again

“I love doing the laundry,” is a sentence one doesn’t hear quite often. Out of all the chores that come with adulting, it’s one of the most boring, not to mention tedious even with a washing machine. This state of mind, however, is set to change with the launch of LG Electronics’ (LG) new washing machine that’s powered with artificial intelligence (AI).

LG’s new, AI DD washing machine detects the volume and weight of each unique laundry load. It also uses AI and advanced sensors to identify fabric types. A feature anyone who has ever done laundry with proper care and fabric longevity in mind will be thankful for.

Using deep learning technology, the washer then compares this information against more than 20 thousand data points related to washer usage. It then sets the optimal setting for the best results. This improves the cleaning of the garment and extends its life up to 15%. Remember – the longer your clothes last means lesser garments making it to the landfills.

Taking the guesswork out of laundry

The machine’s AI technology is able to detect a mixed load and can program the wash cycle to use the appropriate, customized motions. It also decides on the temperature and time. The AI DD washer also figures out of how much detergent and fabric conditioner your load will need.

Detergent and fabric conditioner running low? You can get notifications via the ThinQ mobile app and even connect your washing machine to your Amazon Alexa. The machine can also be set to automatically re-order your preferred laundry products and have them delivered to your doorstep. No more running to the nearby store to get detergent during a laundry emergency!

The machine also automatically picks the optimal drying setting for each load to the compatible LG dryer.

The AI DD washer is set to debut in this year’s CES and has won the Korean company a coveted 2020 Innovation Award from the tech show happening in Las Vegas from 7-10 January 2020.

Sex tech is for everyone, not just for men

CES 2020 encourages sex positivity

Published

Startup Lora DiCarlo graced the headlines last year for having its award revoked by the committee behind the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). The startup believes it was unjust and fought for its right to be part of the annual show.

This year, Lora DiCarlo is the talk of the town once again, not because of an issue, but for being in the spotlight of CES 2020. Lora DiCarlo paved the way for sex tech to be out in the open, particularly companies with devices geared for women’s sex, health, and wellness.

Sex tech isn’t new, but sex being taboo in this modern yet surprisingly conservative society took the spotlight away from their devices. In case you’re wondering, sex technology mostly ventures on innovations to enhance our sexuality and sexual experience.

Breaking barriers

In 2017, men enjoyed VR porn as if it was that revolutionary, while sex toys and vibrators that offer solutions to enhance our experiences and relationships aren’t getting the splash they deserve. Thankfully, CES 2020 is taking a step forward in ending sexism and encourage sex-positivity. After all, sex is part of human nature.

Ever since Lora Haddock DiCarlo — the founder of Lora DiCarlo — fought for their right to be at CES, I was astounded and followed her journey. I’m all ears for women speaking up, especially with the goal of making a change in our society.

Lora DiCarlo’s Osé won an innovative award and was later revoked by CES. Eventually, Lora DiCarlo got the award reinstated while fighting for sex tech to be recognized in a separate category.

Now that DiCarlo and her company sparked a controversy, sex tech are now in the spotlight of the annual show held at Las Vegas. DiCarlo didn’t expect herself to be at the forefront of change, but it elevated her profile and grew her business.

Pleasure is at the forefront

At CES 2020, Lora DiCarlo showcased their first device once again — the Osé — is a personal massager which produces blended orgasm by mimicking movements of a human partner. It’s that revolutionary, hence, gaining an innovation award. I mean, just imagine a device pleasuring you the way a human partner does — It’s astonishing!

Additionally, Lora DiCarlo unveiled two more devices: Baci and Onda. Baci is a micro-robotic device which stimulates the feel and motion of human lips and tongue, while Onda mimics the motion of human fingers. Even though it’s meant for women, I can’t wait to actually try one!

More sex technology to solve our needs

DiCarlo’s fight enabled other companies and devices to get noticed and join the spotlight. Satisfyer showed-off Satisyfer Connect, an app that can be used remotely with a long-distance partner. Lioness delivered its second-generation vibrator tracking data to improve orgasms.

Furthermore, Womanizer exhibited their products and Pleasure Air Technology — a combination of suction and pressure waves — which brings a mindblowing, orgasmic experience. While all of these talk about pleasure, Morari introduced a “band-aid” that withholds pleasure, solving the premature ejaculation issue prevalent with men.

2020 might just be the beginning, but CES showcasing sex technology is a huge step forward in encouraging a sex-positive society. If you’re still iffy about this technology, remember that you’re not the target audience and that you were born because your parents had sex.
