Say goodbye to washing machines! Sonic Soak will clean your clothes using sound waves
While washing clothes, we can never be sure whether all the dirt and bacteria has washed off. However, with this new technology, cleaning clothes got a bit more efficient. The Sonic Soak emits high-frequency sound waves to clean things. These sound waves give rise to minute pressurized bubbles, which strike the laundry and push the dirt, oil and bacteria out of the clothes.
This idea of using ultrasound is quite simple and easy to use. A stainless-steel cylinder of 4.13 x 1.38 in (10.5 x 3.5 cm) that emits ultrasounds is put in a tub or sink containing water along with some cleaning agent. To make the system functional, the cylinder connects to a unit, which uses electricity from a wall socket. Once connected, the device sends out ultrasonic vibrations at a frequency of 50,000 vibrations per seconds. For more control, users can also set a timer from the unit.
However, Sonic Soak’s potential is not limited to washing clothes. It also has the potential to clean delicate materials such as silk and lace, which normally require dry cleaning as well as toothbrushes, razors, baby bottles, pacifiers. Moreover, it also helps keep silverware, toys, accessories and even fruits and vegetables clean!
One of the biggest selling points of the device is its portability. Since it is smaller than any regular smartphone, you can simply zip it up in your backpack and go on trips with it. Furthermore, it is highly energy and water efficient i.e. using up only 10% of energy and 2% of water compared to traditional washing machines; and it’s silent. What more could anyone want?
While it may seem unique, others such as Dolfi Pebble have been presenting the same thing for years. However, Sonic Soak seems like a more sophisticated version of the others and people seem to agree with this.
Funded through the Indiegogo campaign, the device managed to raise an immense 9500% of its goal, hence exceeding the US$2-million aim. So now, we know what the hype was all about!.
