I'm sure Marie Kondo of Netflix's "Tidying Up with Marie Kondo" would be thrilled with a laundry-folding machine (as would I). And many of the other launches also demonstrate just how quickly our world is changing - and sometimes for the better!!
Foldimate laundry-folding machine Foldimate was at CES with a fully laundry-folding working prototype. Feed in a T-shirt to the machine and a neatly folded garment is spat out at the bottom in about five seconds. Foldimate claims its device can fold an entire load of laundry in five minutes, including shirts, trousers and towels. It won’t be able to fold small clothes or large items such as baby clothes or bed linen. Foldimate’s availability is yet to be confirmed, but the company hopes to keep the machine cost to under $1,000.
