As I am led to believe, ironing is the most boring hosehold job. To liven it up and maybe make it a more enjoyable task I was thinking that a game could be incorporated into the Iron, by use of a screen placed just above the handle. On the handle itself there would be two buttons operated by your thumb. One - steam button, the other - no help whatsoever with ironing, but would zap oncoming space craft. The steering would be controlled by the movement of your hand whilst ironing.

       then get your kid to do the ironing. I am thinking of similar games involving oven cleaning and toilet brushes ( not together obviously)

       My little sister (15 on Dec 28th) likes ironing. You could borrow her. You could have her to keep, but the food bills would bankrupt you.   

       Perhaps you could make the game more involved with the ironing, so you got points for every crease you smoothed out and lost points every time you make a crease. As you got points the iron would get hotter, and if you did 5 shirts perfectly, espresso would come out the handle.

       5 perfect shirts = a week for 2 in Kenya   

       1 hanky = an expresso
