Is this machine the best invention ever?

One of the worst jobs around the house is dealing with all your laundry. Let’s face it, folding clothes is a pain in the backside, especially when there are a million other things you would prefer to be doing.

However, all of our lazy prayers have been answered thanks to this brilliant laundry folding machine.

The new and improved FoldiMate was unveiled at this year’s CES tech show in Las Vegas. All you do is clip in your washing and the machine neatly folds and stacks it.

It looks like a pretty hefty piece of kit, but that’s probably because it has the capacity to fold a full washing machine load in under four minutes. Not only that, but we’d put good money on the clothes coming out a lot neater than if you did it yourself.

The FoldiMate will fold most clothes, as well as towels and pillowcases. What it can’t do is small items (like socks  – but do you really need them folded?) or very large and bulky items (like bed sheets or hoodies).

It makes about the same amount of noise as the average dishwasher, and considering how fast it runs, that’s unlikely to cause too much of an annoyance.

Using Foldimate

The FoldiMate is not immediately available, but the company predicts it will first be shipped in late 2019 at a cost of around £725 – unfortunately it looks as though it will initially only be available in the US. Sure, the price is steep, but can you really put a price on spending more precious time on the sofa, instead of doing household chores?

When you were a child imagining what the future of technology would hold, chances are you thought flying cars and hoverboards, not laundry-folding machines.

Sure, hoverboards are cool, but we’ll take a laundry folding machine any time. It might seem lazy, but you’ve got to admit, it’s also genius.

  1. Laser printer paper jam = PITA

    Foldimate jam with your favourite T shirt irrevocably wound around the rollers so you have to cut it off – nightmare!

  2. It would be much better if you can just dump your laundry basket on top of the machine and wait for it to fold it and sort it. If I have to manually feed each clothing, I can just rather help the wife fold the laundry – it’ll probably be the same effort, but I’ll avoid the nagging and save a few quid. Win-Win!
