Socks Machine

A cube six inches tall, with a circular glass door at the front and a little tray to put detergent in.

A washing machine only big enough to wash, at full load, a single pair of socks.

Easily fits into nooks and crannies. Never mind stairs, a cupboard under a single step would do. The hoses can be plugged into a nearby tap, but also come with adapters for the standardized thread of 2-litre bottles, so an inlet and outlet bottle can enable socks washing in remote, or on-the-go situations.

Relish in the zen-like process of pairwise socks cleansing. Contemplate the tribulations of life, two socks at a time. Ruminate on the possibility of finding an odd sock at the end of a wash.

       I don't know about this one. It seems like a lot of engineering when you could just host a dinner and dance, and stand behind the bar looking like you're making cocktails.   

       If you're extremely daring you could hand out cocktail shakers and make it a dinner and sock-wash do. I find a 2 phase cycle of deep house followed by dub-step produces the best results using gin and traditional soap flakes.

       You know the chinese will copy this – it won't be a very good copy, it'll merely be like a socks machine.

       Don't build this. You will have disturbed That Which Keeps the Universal Constants Constant by challenging the fundamental laws by which socks must obey. The socks will still disappear. Somehow. Nature will find a way.   

       My own theory is that they are long-persisting matter/antimatter pairs, but are never paired with their mates, but instead entangled with a mismatched sock on the other side of the world. When one of yours disappears, it's because someone did something with its antimatter half in Bangladesh.

       [+] That Which Keeps the Universal Constants Constant can stuff itself if I can get a single pair of workable sock action in the morning, in under 35 minutes.

       A tiny washing machine is hardly something original.
