In a never-ending quest to cut down on time-consuming tasks as much as possible, appliances from robotic vacuums to alarm clocks that make coffee have found their way into mass market. Now, the FoldiMate aims to take the hassle out of folding laundry by using robotic arms to efficiently fold and even de-wrinkle your clothes using steam. If that isn’t enough, there’s a perfume option in case any lingering odors didn’t get removed during the washing process. While it’s currently restricted to certain types of clothing, it’s an interesting approach to solving the generations-old chore abhorred by many. If you’re interested in procuring one of these contraptions, pre-orders are available for 2017 via FoldiMate’s website, with a retail price expected between $700 to $850 USD. For those who are looking for a more cost effective and efficient way to fold shirts now, take a look at this method.
