This Robot Will Fold All Your Clothes For You So You Can Live Your Most Organised Life

What is this wizardry?

A clothes-folding robot called Foldimate, which is being shown at the Consumer Electronics show (CES) in Las Vegas this week, has gone straight to the top of our technology wish lists.

The machine (which bares a strong resemblance to the humble office printer) is able to fold a whole basket of laundry in one go.

Don’t believe us? Just look at this wizardry. 

All you have to do is feed the individual items into the top tray, and wait ten seconds, and it claims to be able to do a whole pile in four minutes.

The perfect window of time to put the kettle on.

We all know that one of the most boring parts of being an adult is having to make sure you have clean clothes to wear every day of the week (yes, including underwear).

But the whole process of washing, drying, ironing and putting them away really is time consuming, and quite honestly feels like a never ending cycle.

So anything that helps lighten the load (or just do the job for us while we watch Black Mirror) is welcome in our home.

It can take any items of clothing - tops, trousers, underwear - bed linen or towels, and can be adjusted for sizes ranging from children’s clothes all the way up to adult XXL.

And it’s even good for the environment, and your electricity bill, with electrical consumption estimated to be low (approximately 110v to 240v).

People on Twitter have been quick to voice their support for the nifty device. 

Although others had concerns about the device malfunctioning. 

But if you’re willing to take the risk, the company says they plan to gradually begin early shipments in the USA at the end of 2019, and elsewhere after that.

Although your laziness comes at a cost, the estimated ‘target price’ for the final product based on the improved concept model is $980 USD.
