It's one of the most dreaded household chores, laundry. Separating, washing, drying, folding and putting away takes a long time and is an inconvenience for some, but some help could be on the way thanks to a new automatic laundry folding machine!

For as little as $700 you could be the first to purchase a new automated laundry folding robot called the FoldiMate. The company is a California-startup that claims their machine can fold your shirts and jeans perfectly and twice as fast as you could do it manually! The robot will also steam your shirts for you and add perfume and sanitizer to them as well!

The engineers behind the product and their website show there's interest from more than 79,000 people and they plan on taking pre-orders next year and have plans to ship these handy machines out in 2018. Yes, it could be a time saver, but would it be worth the investment? See the product in action in their video below.
