  • Mar 23 2011: It is amazing how far technological progress has come. I have always lived with a washing machine and everyone I knew had them. I can only imagine what it was like back in the old days before the washing machine. It must have seemed like a complete miracle for the women to see a machine do what took them all day do in just an hour's time. It reminds me of things today, like fully functional bicycles and human kidneys being printed. I enjoyed this video clip.
