FoldiMate's robotic laundry folder

Techstination feature for Friday, February 8, 2019

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.     Lots of households have robotic vacuums whirring around floors helping to clean up.     How about a robotic device that can fold your laundry.   FoldiMate is the name of a company …based in Israel….that is turning the idea into a reality.   Founder Gal Rozov showed it to us at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show…

“So it’s very simple.   All you have to do is taken an item, it can be shirts,  pants, towels and even pillow cases…clip it onto FoldiMate and within under five minutes you can get through an entire laundry load.”  What’s going on inside, how does this work?  “So it’s a proprietary technology that we developed that allows us to identify the items such that it will optimally fold them for you.”

Rozov’s goal is to have it on the market by year’s end for under a thousand dollars.  Check out www.FoldiMate.com for more.
