Would you spend $1000 for a laundry folding machine?

“How much would you pay to have a robot fold your laundry? California-based robotics start-up FoldiMate hopes the answer to that question is about $1,000.

FoldiMate is building a home assistant robotics machine to fold laundry. The start-up showcased a prototype at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week, but the final product will not ship until late 2019.

And it’s expected to cost $980, according to the FoldiMate website.”

Supposedly, this machine will fold an average load of laundry in 2 to 4 minutes. This doesn’t include smaller items like socks and baby clothes. It also won’t fold larger things such as bed sheets. It’s a novel concept, but is folding really that much of a hassle that you feel it necessary to spend $1000 on a machine?
