In the wardrobe-washing machine there are three special “air hooks” on which to hang clothes. The first function, JetAir, uses powerful air jets to loosen and remove dust. JetSteam follows which, with its high temperature steam, kills bacteria, viruses and allergens.
The next stage of the process sees a deodorant filter, which breaks down the particles responsible for odors such as sweat, tobacco and food. The self-cleaning process ends dehumidifying and sanitizing the AirDresser itself, without the need for detergents and also dehumidifying the room.
It may make sense
It may seem excessive, but Samsung relies heavily on this technology. This cleaning cabinet, the Korean company says, is more efficient than traditional cleaning methods.
Running a washer and dryer for a couple of items is wasteful, like dry cleaning, which also uses harsh chemicals. Both, then, are quite intense processes that can reduce the life of clothes (especially elegant ones) and completely damage delicate fabrics.
On the contrary, AirDresser can combine steam and air flows to wash and iron with care and delicacy. The sanitizing function can also be used on different items such as children's soft toys.
Samsung Airdresser: Could the AI be missing?
I am not surprised by the presence of artificial intelligence, a real obsession (if not a fashion) of the contemporary technology industry. The artificial intelligence in this case promises to learn what clothes you own and suggests the best way to clean them.
The installation does not need a connection to the plumbing system: as for the dryers, two removable trays house the water needed for the processes and collect the dirt.
Prices are yet to be defined, but everything suggests that the Samsung AirDresser will be a little more expensive than an old washing machine. It's the price of the future, baby.
