Ironing clothes is so 2005

The BBC is reporting on the invention of a machine that can wash, dry and iron your clothes, oddly enough called WashDryIron. Oliver Blackwell, a 23 year old student at the University of Plymouth developed the machine as part of a final project. It can handle up to 16 items at a time, including king size sheets. The inventor estimates that the machine will retail for £800-£900 ($1387 - $1561) and save on the order of 10 days a year in ironing time.

"A friend's father said he wouldn't have got married if I'd come up with this sooner," Blackwell said.
