    « One of the most unique gadgets I found at CES. | Main | Chad's Crappy Corner and his final 'gifts I got' gadget. »

    Remember the Foldimate Chad & I wanted to see at CES? Here's the latest.

    Here's a quick recap & a photo of what Foldimate looks like:

    At three-feet-high this robotic folding machine is probably not good for appartments, but perfect bigger families who have space, or even a dedicated laundry room. The company says the FoldiMate will take crumpled shirts, tops and trousers and not only fold them, but help them look neater with a bit of steam to get rid of wrinkles. This isn't inexpensive, and is is expected to cost between $700 and $850. Considering it's said to take only ten seconds to fold each item and that it can fold 15 to 20 pieces of clothing and deliver it at the bottom of the machine, neatly piled up, it could be worth it. (Evidently this company is not brand new in this area and have been making a commercial version for the past few years, so it makes sense for them to bring their know how to the home market.
