After enlightenment, the laundry

Continuing with an apparel theme, I came across an interesting open source hardware project on the OpenMaterials website. Yesterday’s OpenMaterials post by Catarina Mota highlights the Open Source Washing Machine Project, which, in its words, “aims to rethink the way we wash clothes around the world, in accordance with economical, sociological, cultural and environmental aspects.”  This project, is without a doubt, one of the most recent illustrations of the Zen proverb that is the title of this post – After [open source software] enlightenment, the laundry!
