Xeros Washing Machine Needs Only 1 Cup Water


Imagine having a washing machine that only needs one cup of water for a full wash. That may not be so far away since researchers at Leeds University in the UK are already working on it. Xeros uses thousands of 1/2cm plastic chips to absorb and hence remove dirt. When the water heats up, about 20 kilos of chips are added to the water and detergent. The chips can be used up to 100 times, about 6 month’s worth. The team is hoping to bring the prototype out to the public by 2009. The scientists say that it could save billions of gallons of water a year, not to mention how it would cut down on your electric bill.

Wow, normally in our washing machines, one pant or one skirt may take more than one glass of water or may be more, but how can these scientists do this.—adding chips,
Great work, if it becomes a success, we can save lot of water.

Lulz that’s ingenious. Only 1 cup XDDD
Not sure about its efficiency though. And does it not even need detergent?? (Is very skeptical)
Lol. My comment’s antispam word is “water”

The wonders of modern day science people

I really look forward to seeing this technology once it comes out.  It would help me save a lot of electricity, and especially save a lot of water too.  This is a really amazing concept, I hope that research continues on this project and an actual washing machine like this is launched some day.
