if you hate folding clothes, FoldiMate will fold them for you into neat piles

we all hate doing laundry, or at least that’s what I tell myself every time I have to take the clean-smelling clothes, fold them and put them back in the closet. luckily — and if I’m ever a millionaire — there is now a robot that can fold clothes into neat piles, and it was presented in las vegas at CES 2018. called FoldiMate, this machine can take an entire laundry load and fold it in a few minutes – a task so simple and fun to operate that even kids will be fighting to do it, or at least that’s what the company states.

FoldiMate will be available for a total of $980 USD



designed to fit nicely in any room, FoldiMate can be placed anywhere in your house for a grand total of $980 USD. the robot can fold any type of shirt, blouse, or pants from age 5 to adult size XXL. it works best with average-sized clothing and currently it can’t fold very small items like baby clothes, socks or undergarments, as well as very large ones like sheets or bulky ones like hoodies.


think it’s still worth it? FoldiMate will be shipping at the end of 2019.

    Wendy Martins says:
  • I would order one of these. I don’t want to pre-order because sometimes start up companies go out of business.

    nice says:
  • pls I want to buy this iron cloths product how much price for this and from where I can get this

    Mohammad Tariq Malik says:
  • mmmm… there is this automatic dryer-ironing machine by Effie which costs 700 Pounds, How could be a folding machine (you really have to be a fat-ass to buy it) around the same price? However i see it very useful in shops and textile companies and a good household appliance. One day we will have the washing/dryer/ironing/folding-machine, looking forward to it.

    J says:
  • First, I would like to thank the company for the intelligence of the product and the strength of invention

    Second, I would like to propose something to market in Saudi Arabia

    The people there are mostly wearing a Saudi dress or what is called a jalabiya or a cloak, which is a size of the length of the body .. I hope you add this size within the machine ..

    Memo says:
  • We need a automatic wash, iron cloths and folding machine with additional features.

    P.Ravichandran says:
  • If it doesn’t iron it, it’s pointless.
    Good for companies like Zipjet, too big and noisy for home, it takes, 1 second to fold a t-shirt, 5 seconds to feed it in the machine.
