In Japan, space tends to be scarce. People live in tiny apartments, especially in the big cities, so every inch of space is valuable. That's why something like this Toshiba TW-3000VE washing machine/air condition exists. Sure, it'll clean your clothes, but it'll also keep your closet-sized apartment nice and cool. It's a brilliant idea, I guess, but here's a more brilliant one: go to a Laundromat. It'll save even more space, I promise. In any case, this thing'll be available for $2,600 starting next month.
