In the last few years we have been hearing about several alternatives that aimed to evolve or to discontinue the washing machine and Dolfi is no exception, but for a more specific use cause this little gadget seeks that we save water and energy when washing our clothes.
It turns out that a group of developers led by Lena Solis, along with technology MPI Ultrasonics, a Swiss company with 25 years of experience in product development and process with ultrasonic technology, has created a device called Dolfi, which consists of a chubby capsule the size of a smartphone that is capable of creating modulated sound waves that travel through water and create microscopic bubbles of high pressure, which trap and expel dirt from clothing fibers.
According to what its creators explained, Dolfi is designed to work mainly with delicate clothes, and thanks to its mechanism, they receive no damage and are gleaming. In only 30 minutes, a bucket of water and a little detergent, Dolfi performs its magic tearing dirt from any garment, whether sensitive or not, the only thing we should take into account is that its limit is very short, because it only works well with a load of clothes smaller than 2 kg.
Among the qualities of Dolfi we can find its IPX68 certification, which specifies its water resistance while connected to the mains, without forgetting that it uses 80 times less energy than a washing machine. Besides that, unlike any washing machine, Dolfi has a perfect size for travelers in addition to its creators promise that Dolfi works perfectly either with a voltage of 110v or of 220v.
