Fictional GE executive Jack Donaghy came up with the idea of transparent dishwasher doors, but it hasn’t yet become reality. This might be the next best thing, though. Last year, someone who owns a waterproof GoPro camera had a brilliant idea: devise a waterproof light source for inside the appliance, then film a wash cycle so we can all learn what is going on in there.
The answer is: um, some water spraying around and some dishes getting washed. The camera was affixed to the back right corner of the dishwasher, providing a nice view of the action. This is very interesting and all, but the action isn’t that exciting in the end. It’s probably more interesting to drive through a car wash, but watching the four-and-a-half-minute wash cycle feels like intruding somehow.
Now, I just need to a camera to capture the action inside my refrigerator when the door’s closed. I just know that the red peppers and the cans of hard cider are having some great parties in there.
