Pecera

Detergent be gone. These robot fish nibble at dirty laundry.

pecera-familyThe thought of itty-bitty fish nibbling on our skin to get rid of dead cells gives us the heebie jebbies. So you can only imagine how we’re feeling after learning about this contraption from Korean industrial designer Chan Yeop Jeong, who was inspired by¬†doctor fish to recreate little robots that look just like them and which can be used to feed on the dead skin and dirt left on our clothing. His idea came out of the Electrolux Design Lab 2014, a global comp for design students. The plus side is that there’s no more need for laundry detergent! Oh, and you can finally say yes to the nagging kids who won’t give up on begging for a home aquarium.
