we all hate doing laundry, or at least that’s what I tell myself every time I have to take the clean-smelling clothes, fold them and put them back in the closet. luckily — and if I’m ever a millionaire — there is now a robot that can fold clothes into neat piles, and it was presented in las vegas at CES 2018. called FoldiMate, this machine can take an entire laundry load and fold it in a few minutes – a task so simple and fun to operate that even kids will be fighting to do it, or at least that’s what the company states.
designed to fit nicely in any room, FoldiMate can be placed anywhere in your house for a grand total of $980 USD. the robot can fold any type of shirt, blouse, or pants from age 5 to adult size XXL. it works best with average-sized clothing and currently it can’t fold very small items like baby clothes, socks or undergarments, as well as very large ones like sheets or bulky ones like hoodies.
think it’s still worth it? FoldiMate will be shipping at the end of 2019.
