This has been out since February, actually, but I can’t find any mention of it anywhere for some reason. It seems Panasonic has released for the European market three different models of washing machines that feature a special 3D sensor. Why?
As the advanced 3D sensor detects how the drum moves according to load, a variable speed control system uses that information to fine-tune motor operation. This eliminates unbalanced loads and creates an ideal three-dimensional washing effect. The result here is less stretching, less tangling and fewer wrinkles — and an altogether gentler effect on the clothes in the wash.
There’s also some talk of energy-saving, water saving and other environmentally friendly buzzwords.
It should currently be available in Belgium, France, Germany, Netherlands, Poland and the United Kingdom, followed by other parts of Europe over the course of the year.
Full press release after the jump.
