South Korea’s major home appliances maker LG Electronics Inc. said it plans to start official sales of the washers this year. The company said the LG Tromm washers equipped with voice-recognition platforms allow users to activate all features using only voice throughout all processes.
LG Electronics said it plans to release more products equipped with artificial-intelligence technologies to add convenience for all users including the visually impaired.
It marks the second time LG Electronics released a home appliance which can recognize voice. In July, it released an air conditioner with similar capabilities.
The company recently donated washers equipped with voice-recognition systems to 15 Korean Blind Union centers across the country.
The donation came in line with the international White Cane Safety Day to raise social awareness of the rights of the visually impaired.
