Dubbed ‘Your laundry folding friend’, FoldiMate folds your laundry for you and it does it better than you could ever do.
The machine has a row of trays, each one of which a piece of clothing can be clipped on to. Once pulled inside the machine, the FoldiMate senses the type of garment and a series of robot arms is used to fold it into place.
It can also “de-wrinkle” them with steam, and “perfume” them as it goes. The company says it takes around 10 seconds to fold each item and can hold between 15 and 20 pieces of clothing at a time.
The three-foot-high robot is expected to cost between $700 and $850.
