LG has a solution for smelly concertgoers at the Bonnaroo festival

If you’re attending the 2018 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in June, you might be surprised to see LG Electronics at the big event. The home appliance and electronics company is holding the “LaundROO Lounge and Vintage Clothing Swap” the first event of its kind from LG. The interactive experience is meant to help festival attendees refresh their style, experience all that LG devices have to offer, and — let’s face it — smell a little better. After all, dancing for hours under the hot sun can really ramp up that body odor, and when you multiply that by thousands? Yikes.

The 3,600-square-foot site will be located in the middle of the 700-acre campground. There, festivalgoers will find a lounge equipped with a wash-n-fold service consisting of 50 LG washing machines and dryers, as well as LG Styler steam clothing care systems. Attendees can drop off any dirty, smelly clothing for a complimentary wash before heading back out to the music — and come back an hour or two later to fresh, nice-smelling clothes. It’s the perfect solution for anyone who wants to avoid stinking up the dance floor.

In addition to helping attendees stay fresh and clean at the Bonnaroo Music Festival, LG has also partnered with vintage shop What Goes Around Comes Around to organize a vintage clothing swap at the festival. Attendees can stop by the LaundRoo lounge for a visit with a professional stylist to choose a festival outfit they love, swapping out their own clothing in exchange. There will be 2,500 different articles of clothing to choose from, so instead of waiting for your own outfit to come out of the dryer, you can get a new outfit entirely. Attendees’ original outfits will go through an LG washer and dryer, and then get displayed back on the racks for other attendees to consider. All festivalgoers who go through the vintage swap will leave with a new outfit, and the selection of outfits on the racks will remain fresh, clean, and ever-changing. At the end of the festival, all remaining clothing on the racks will be donated to a local charitable partner.

The LaundRoo lounge will also offer mobile phone charging stations, gaming stations with LG OLED TVs, hangout spots, and more, allowing attendees to relax in between music sessions. All festivalgoers are welcome to experience the site for free.

“At LG, we want to make everyday life more fun with our cutting-edge innovations that work hard so consumers can spend more time enjoying those ‘life’s good’ moments,” Dave VanderWaal, senior vice president of marketing, LG Electronics USA, said in a statement. “At this year’s Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, we’re demonstrating the power of LG washing machines and inviting festivalgoers to go ahead and have fun, be themselves and #GetDirty — because no matter how dirty or busy life gets, LG can take care of them on the dance floor and at home.”

Warmer weather is upon us, and that means it’s time to start keeping up with the yard work. A new lawn mower can go a long way toward keeping your yard looking nice, and right now you can shop with some savings in store. Tech advancements have introduced a range of new lawnmowers over the years, but whether you’re looking for something cordless, gas-powered, electric, or even one of the best robot lawn mowers, we’ve got some savings in store for you. We’ve tracked down all of the best lawn mower deals below, as well as some information on whether each deal will get you the right lawn mower for your needs.
American Lawn Mower Company 50514 — $139, was $160

The American Lawnmower Company has created a lawn mower that works well and isn't enormously heavy — a mere 20 pounds. With its 14-inch cutting width and absurdly low weight, you can zip through small jobs quickly and get back to whatever else it is that you'd prefer to be doing in a hurry. The only odd point, at least if you're coming from traditional lawn mowers, about the American Lawnmower Company 50514 is how it is a corded mower. This means you'll have to slightly adjust your mowing to be more like vacuuming with a corded vacuum. It also means that, even with an extension cord, you won't be able to stray too far from home with it. As a result of its weight and corded nature, the American Lawnmower Company 50514 is perfect for smaller homes (and people).

Dyson’s new AR mobile app shows where you forgot to clean

Dyson has always been on the cutting edge of vacuum technology, with heaps of premium vacuums filling the pages of its product catalog. Now, the company seems to be branching out to the world of augmented reality, with the reveal of Dyson CleanTrace -- a new feature on the MyDyson mobile app that shows you all the spots in your home that are yet to be cleaned.

Using Dyson CleanTrace is simple, though it comes with pretty strict limitations. For one, it only works with the expensive Dyson Gen5detect cordless vacuum. It also requires a smartphone with a lidar scanner (like an iPhone 15) and a special clamp to attach your phone to the vacuum (which is yet to receive a price tag). With all that out of the way, you'll then be able to launch the MyDyson app and access the CleanTrace feature for free when it arrives in June.
