Futuristic appliance ideas showcased at gallery

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Imagine a laundry machine that folds your clothes for you -- it might not be that far off.  It's one of the ideas GE thinks could be in homes in the future, and it's being showcased at the Home 2025 exhibit at Cressman Center Gallery.

There's also a refrigerator that changes temperature based on the foods inside.  Industrial designers worked for months, studying future trends and advanced technology to come up with their display.

Lou Lenzi, GE Industrial Design Operations Manager, explains, "One of the things we tried to do is stay grounded in reality.  So you won't see any anti-gravity machines.  You won't see George Jetson here.  What we tried to do is bring some rigor to the process -- that's typical GE."

The exhibit is open until the end of August.
