RSS enabled washers and dryers?

What a great idea, if only it were true. Maybe someday soon. According to a story in Newslink Indiana, the student laundry facilities at Ball State can now be monitored on the web:

The process starts out when a student logs on to the Wash Alert Web site and selects the residence hall they live in. The system displays which washing and drying machines are available and in use for your specific hall.

Wouldn't it be even better if the students could just check RSS feeds of their favorite washers and dryers in their aggregators? The possibilities are endless. Unfortunately, the Wash Alert site can only be accessed from the BSU network. There's probably a good reason for that.
