Of all the appliances that have made life easier at home, the task of folding laundry still falls to manual labor. Well, there’s hope on that front now, with good hope that in a few years, you can have a bot to fold laundry. There are a handful of contenders in the field for folding laundry, one of them being FoldiMate. This bot is the size of a European washer and can (optionally) scent and dewrinkle clothes while it folds them.
FoldiMate takes about two and a half minutes to fold 25 pieces of clothing. You will be saved the trouble of folding the clothes, but you will still need to feed each cloth individually to the bot. It can process clothes ranging in size from a five-year old’s to a men’s XXL. Any smaller or longer, and the bot says no.
The bot is likely to show up in the market later this year or early 2018. The company is currently accepting bookings at 10% of the marked price. FoldiMate is priced at $850, and the company expects the price and the size of the gadget to reduce with continued development.
