Compact washing device Sonic Soak generates modulated, ultrasonic waves that travel through water to disintegrate dirt and bacteria at microscopic level
The Sonic Soak team launched Indiegogo campaign, which is expected to raise US$ 10,000 for bringing mass production on their product. It is a stainless-steel cylinder measuring 4.13 x 1.38 in (10.5 x 3.5 cm), which can be placed in a tank full of water splashed with detergent and hooked up to a unit that plugs into a wall outlet. Operation of Sonic Soak is based on principle of ultrasound. The device emits high-frequency sound waves, when placed in water it creates small pressurized bubbles. These collide with the items being washed to eliminate dirt, oil, and bacteria. The device emits 50,000 ultrasonic vibrations per second and users can set timers from the wall unit.
The Sonic Soak has potentially to gently clean delicate fabrics such as silk and lace; hygiene items such as toothbrushes and razors, baby bottles and pacifiers; and silverware, toys, tools, eyeglasses, jewelry, dishes, fruit and vegetables. Major advantage of this device is that, it is portable and uses just 10 percent of the energy and under two percent of the water of a regular washing machine. Also, it is silent and does not cause loud noise while working.
“There have been attempts to utilize ultrasonic technology in the past, but no other device has come close to the technology that Sonic Soak has to offer,” said Glen Gunawan, founder of Sonic Soak. “We are promising to deliver the most effective and potent ultrasonic cleaning device ever made available for the consumer market.” The device currently available exclusively on Indiegogo and users can pre-order Sonic Soak for US$ 125, which is 50% off the retail price.
