the_egg by DENIS VOENKOV from russia

designer's own words:

the_egg is the innovative project of washing machine. it case has form of egg inside of which the ferrit barrel is placed. it’s moved by the system of active magnets around that sphere - magnets are switching on clockwise one after another and potential difference makes the ferrit barrel with linen & clothes inside move. because of the powerful magnets the potential difference makes the barrel rotating without touching surfaces around it - because of created force field between active magnets and ferrit barrel. there is few mechanical parts in this construction. the door for linen & clothes loading is placed traditionally on a side of a wachine machine and it’s sliding inside the case. lcd sensor touch screen has all control functions - you can download skins and updates for you washing machine from internet. this waching machine is quiet and easy to handle.
