Virtual Washing Machine

The killer iphone app
  (+4)

This application saves tons of water. Helps people with ADHD concentrate, and besides IPhone runs on Android and perhaps in the near future on Blackberry and LG.

So here's how it works:

It starts with the image of a washing machine. You pay by sending an SMS. It then begins washing. You can choose from different programs. It can wash your icons, or you can choose from different presets. You can add your own images. A button allows you to zoom in. There is also a choice of nausiating slushing sounds. You can contact friends and watch the luandry in groups.

A continuation (pro version) of this game would be Virtual Cloths Folding program.

       How exactly does this help with ADHD?

       Other people should be able to send you virtual laundry to be done ("Sorry about the stains - I had a really hot curry yesterday").

       How about a virtual money laundering option to the app?

       In this household the laundry is done by wife eye.

       Don't know if it would help with ADHD, but it might with OCD. Rather than actually washing each time, run the app. A virtual hand washing one might be useful as well.

       Its helping my ADD just to think about it.

       When you let your mother do it there is no necessary invention.

       But if your iphone is by your mother, how do you receive SMSs, or get notified of earthquakes occuring around the world while doing your homework and driving at the same time?   

       WcW: It helps people with ADHD, training them to concentrate on one thing - the turning laundry in the window, without being distracted, for longer and longer times. It would be a program prescribed by psychiatrists and would alleviate the patients of the need to visit an actual laundromat for the duration of this treatment.
