Ultrasonic bubble dishwasher concept

Small automatic dishwasher floats in the sink and uses sound waves to clean.

It's a dishwasher.

Is there anything that sound waves cannot do? This concept ultrasonic bubble dishwasher isn't even the first ultrasonic dishwasher we've come across. But still, the fact that it's round, sleek, and bubble-shaped can only mean good things.

I can get a handle behind the theory of how I imagine this ultrasonic dishwasher works: shake the dirt loose with sound waves, and maybe filter small particles while letting the larger ones sink to the bottom. Drop it in the water, let it float around, presto-cleano, no more dirty dishes. It even has LED indicator lights to let you know when it's done.

So, as we keep seeing new ways of doing things, technology keeps dropping these round little cleaners on us every few years. We already have those vacuum cleaner robots, which happen to be kind of bubble-shaped, or at least roundish.

For a concept piece, this is right up there with all the concepts I imagine taking over in the not-too-distant future. I know I can think of all sorts of daily chores that need bubble ultrasonic cleaner things--round or not. I know my hamper could certainly use some sort of magic cleaning device. Between my whole house and all the chores that pile up, I, for one, will anxiously be waiting for a whole army of them.

See? A dishwasher.
