Thank you, Philco, for inviting us to plunge into the underwater world of your Automagic washer. [The Ice Bucket Challenge of 1958, perhaps?] The high-frequency washing action—calculated at 600 surging waves per minute—is depicted as a gentle function. But this 20-second video of the bladeless rubber agitator in motion certainly gives an impression that is not exactly congruent with the blissful, blue depths this svelte skin-diver is experiencing.
