We've seen more than our share of both high tech home appliances and docks for MP3 players. However, the marriage of a washing machine with speakers and audio dock, well... that's a new one. Still, that's exactly what LG's patent application for this "Home appliance with MP3 player" is asking for. Of course, we have to question the sanity of integrating audio playback into a device we prefer to tuck away from sight due its excessive noise and mess. However, sanity and USPTO patent applications are seldom synonymous. As such, we'll take it that LG is just hedging their future bets on this one. You know, just in case they need a dubious source of revenue in tough financial times.
