Quietest 1 to 18 washer

Oh Jon I have a few more tricks up my sleeve to, when I'm done with this washer when it's running it will actually absorb noise from neighboring machines , lol, all sound near it will actually disappear into a black hole kind of effect.

I love the concept of the machine absorbing adjacent sound.  Just think of the possibilities!  Like - place it backstage when certain politicians campaign.....

Lawrence, that might be good on some GOP debates!

I think we should add a noisy Frigidaire Laundry Center in front of their most popular candidate just in case some sounds coming out of his mouth aren't absorbed by John's 1-18 at the back. That would also hide his provocative gesture... And if his hair gets too close to the dryer intake he might get berned!

May not be too far fetched. With a small computer and some DSP some active noise-reduction could be added for Phase II

Kinda reminds me of two pipedream inventions I had. A Microwave oven 'like' device that sucks heat out of something. Or a stage light that shoots beams of blackness :)

I assume John must have been looking at vintage jetliner's and their "huskits" fitted to meet noise regulations to gain further inspiration. 


My guess is we'll see something like a 6-chute drain mixer or something equivalent fitted (image linked below)

If you accidentally pull us into a black hole, you are SO grounded, mister!
