MediaPost: Whirlpool is here as a consumer product marketer, but it’s also becoming something of a media platform as it transitions to connected devices. What’s your connection?

Randi Zuckerberg: It’s a real passion for me. I see the potential of where all of this is going to have a truly smart laundry room in your house, as part of a smart home. I think this is just the first step.

The Swash device is actually a joint venture between Procter & Gamble and Whirlpool, and I was brought on by the Procter & Gamble innovation lab a little over a year-and-a-half ago to consult as they were developing the product. What reall…………… continues on MediaPost Communications
