New ‘laundry jet’ vacuums clothes, sends them to wash, but Twitter has concerns

If you’ve ever thought the “mankind has gone too far” meme pattern is kind of legit, here’s the Laundry Jet’s presentation. It is the “first vacuum-fed laundry chute that transports laundry from any room with ports installed, to the laundry room”. This basically means there’s a vacuum system that sucks up your clothes when you throw them at it and transports them straight to the laundry room, provided you have one. Sounds like a relatively harmless invention, right? Bad. Twitter users have been having fun on the system video at work and it’s more of a problem than you might have guessed.

Automation is cool but Twitter clearly doubts whether this a lot of automation is still needed. For example, there is a roti maker that will do everything from mixing to kneading to puffing. The problem? It costs Rs 1,11,000. The Rotimatic completely automates the process of making rotis, but the price has made many social media users do a double take. Claiming to be the “smarter way to roast”, the Rotimatic’s website reads: “Rotimatic is the world’s first fully integrated solution that measures, mixes, kneads, flattens, bakes, puffs and delights. All in one !” It can make a number of different types: Whole Wheat Roti, Roti Jowar, Roti Bajra, Puri, Pizza, Multigrain Roti and Wrap Roti. The user must load the ingredients into the machine. It has been around for quite some time in India.
