Small pic future of laundry

It seems the farther we get into the future the faster things change. Thirty years someone might use a landline phone to call in to a restaurant you knew to make a reservation. In 2016 we can use a smartphone to research a restaurant to eat at, reserve a table, and then request a car for a ride to dinner.

Anon Laundry co is in the business of taking dirty clothes and getting them clean. We’ve already seen many advances in this field such as on demand washing services like Washio, and single serve laundry pods that eliminate the need to measure detergent. We think that this is just the beginning of big changes in the laundry world, and want to know what you think will come next.

Deliverables

1. What will be generally different about most consumer’s lifestyles in the year 2030? (~1 Paragraph)

2. What do you think will have changed about the way we do and think about laundry? What steps will occur between an article of clothing being removed, and that article being ready to wear again? (2-5 Paragraphs)

3. (optional) Sketches, drawings, mock-ups, charts, graphs or any other visuals to support your argument is strongly encouraged

Criteria:

- We want to hear your thoughts on interesting and exciting new directions that laundry might head in. Submissions that suggest predictable/already established practices will not be highly regarded

- Consider the human experience with laundry in the future, and how Anon Laundry co can fit into the new practices that will be in place
