LG -- a leader in almost every industry that involves electricity -- has unveiled a new washing machine that promises to rival that hunk-a-junk you have whirling away in your basement.

The washing machine houses a 32-bit DSP chip and ball-balance technology that significantly reduces barrel vibration. How well do those technologies work you ask? According to the company, the outside of the washing machine moves only 0.1mm when it's turned on.

Unfortunately there isn't too much information available for this machine. But what we do know is the cleaner should achieve 20 percent less power consumption and your clothes will be cleaner in a fraction of the time if the Samsung washing machine (they are both the same machine) announced at CES is any indication of its performance.

With all of that said, the real question here is: do people really care about a washing machine that will reduce vibrations? I don't know about you, but I think my washing machine is just fine for right now.
