The BBC says:

A Spanish designer has come up with what could be the perfect solution for the woman who feels frustrated that she has to do all the house chores.

It is a washing machine called "Your Turn", which will not let the same person use it twice in a row.

It uses fingerprint recognition technology to ensure the job of loading is not dumped on just one individual.

Who would be stupid enough to buy this? Only someone with more money than sense. Imagine that your partner is on a business trip for a week and you need to do some laundry. Better cram it all into one load or else. And meanwhile don't spill any wine on anything. And if your partner dies, the first thing you will have to do is buy a new washing machine (apparently it is difficult to hack around the system). May the company making this go bankrupt. And why does the BBC give positive publicity to this idiotic idea? Is their political correctness so overwhelming as to disengage any brain function? (The story is anti-men, they would never run such a story if it were anti-women.)
