  1. Are you kidding me?!? The only good idea out of the lot is the Hurricane Drink Mixer, even then I prefer to mix my own drinks! I can sort of understand where Electrolux is wanting to go with their design lab ideas… but these are stupid!

    Really, how much clothing can you wash in a hula hoop, and how long are you really going to spin that thing around yourself? I don't care if your in shape or not, most people in the world cannot spin a hula hoop around their waist for 45-60 mins… Most of the rest of designs are so far out there, we aren't even close to having the technology for some of these devices.

    Electrolux Design Lab needs to be coming out with new designs for existing products or thinking of products that we can use NOW! Not in 50 years, most people aren't that patient to wait that long for a new product, they only want to wait a few months at most….

  2. I'm really wondering, about the finalist ideas. This is for the Electrolux final selection??? To have a spoon,which spreads spices,or mixing drink in the ring??? or even hula hop washing machine???…etc. its nothing inventive!!, already seen in many student concepts …and everything is stuffed with Iphone apps and these should be the hottest design?? the electrolux competition is not moving forward, its getting heavily down the hill. sad!
