Meet Peggy – the world’s first smart peg designed to lighten the laundry load


There’s lot of smart products out there – phones, TV, watches and cars – but the latest smart device that’s been revealed is called Peggy. It’s the world’s smallest clothes peg.

Peggy is an Australian product designed to lighten the laundry load and free up time in our already busy lives to do the things you really want to do.

So how does it work?

Peggy connects to your home’s wi-fi network and tells you the best time to do the washing according to the weather.

It might look like an ordinary peg but the onboard technology can monitor temperature fluctuations, measure humidity and precipitation and detect the level of UV light.


These factors are used to work out the approximate drying time with any changes to these calculations shared via the companion app to the user with a push notification.

Developed by laundry product manufacturer Omo, Peggy is currently in the prototype phase of development and is being made with parents in mind.

The motivation behind the product was to give parents more time to spend with their children instead of doing the laundry.


Research has found that 94 per cent of parents admit they don’t spend as much time playing with their children as they would like.

Peggy can even suggest games and fun activities to enjoy with your kids while the washing is being taken care of.
