Where to begin with the Orbit Washing Machine? Its compact form is packed with innovative features that take the time, tediousness and wasted energy out of laundering. It's like no other clothes cleaner you've encountered.

Addressing its shape, the contraption comprises a magnetic ring and a spherical receptacle. Once you've put a small load of garments into the ball, a few taps on the touchscreen interface will send the tumbler going, whipping around within the round bounds of the frame. It acts as both washer and dryer.

Elie Ahovi's invention is low-energy, employing induction and harnessing the kinetic energy created when the appliance is in motion. In addition, the Electrolux Orbit Washing Machine cleans cryogenically so that no detergent is necessary. It uses solid CO2 to sterilize the articles inside and negative ions help to "freshen and purify" the clothing as well.
