Yes, I Would Pay $850 For This Robot That Folds Clothes

We weren’t paid to write about this, but we probably should’ve been. I’m just covering it because good, honest people like you deserve to know that something like this exists. I won’t dance around it anymore: it’s a damn robot that folds your clothes.

Yes, this sounds like something you concocted while high off of what you thought was weed but was really just some sticks and stems mixed together with some pencil shavings in high school, but some innovative soul put pen to paper and designed a real game changer. It’s called the Foldimate, a name which sounds like it came from the mind of one of those try-hards you went to middle school with that competed in the Invention Conventions (I was one of those try-hards), and it’s basically a box you toss your laundry in that takes care of a basic task that you’re just too much of a piece to do.

Not only can your new laundry god tell the difference between pants and shirts and then fold accordingly, but it also steams. Folds, steams and creases all those Brooks Brothers outlet oxfords and golf polos from courses you’ve never played in under a minute. What a time to be alive – is what I will say in 2018 when this thing is for sale. But you can apparently pre-order it in 2017 for a cool $850. Pricey? Maybe. Worth it? Obviously.

If you don’t believe me, check out this amazingly generic video from the good people at Foldimate:

Why did that give me anxiety?
