    You may own a clothes washer & a clothes dryer, but I bet you don't own an automatic clothes folder.

    If you own a home, a washer and dryer is most likely standard equipment. They makes two jobs pretty easy. But then comes folding the clean clothes, not a particularly hard job, but a boring, time consuming one. Well now (or soon) they'll be something new to help with that! The name of the American company is FoldiMate, so that gives you a pretty good idea of what their product does. 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.
