Hate folding laundry and don’t mind spending on a robot? Then FoldiMate is exactly what you’ve been waiting for. First introduced in 2016, this device is almost ready for production, as the latest prototype has been further advanced from its previous model, and now automatically adapts to the clothing item type and size. It can now fold a full load of laundry (around 25 items) in 5 minutes. When launched, it’s expected to retail for around $980, or less than many washing / drying machines.

“We designed a chic appearance after learning that many people plan to use FoldiMate in their bedrooms, spare rooms, or living rooms. We realized that it needs to look less like an appliance as not everyone has space in their laundry room, and even if they do, they don’t necessarily want to fold there,” said the company.
