Soap-free washing machine

In an unusual turn, the international electronics maker Haier has developed the WasH2O, a laundry machine said to clean clothes without a single drop of soap. Water molecules are broken through electrolysis into OH- and H+ ions, the former of which are said to attract any stains, while the latter provide a form of sterilization. Like normal washers the WasH2O has adjust cycles and temperatures, and can be done in as little as 25 minutes in the "Sport" mode. An "Eco Time" mode grants the option of less water consumption in exchange for a slower process. Several colors of the machine should launch in France in the near future, at a price of about 699 ($956). [via Luxurylaunches]
