How much would you pay to never have to do ironing again?

It's just one of those things that has to be done – but that doesn't make folding your laundry any less tiresome.

So a robot that folds, softens, sterilises and perfumes your clothes in one minute flat is any homemaker's dream!

FoldiMate is designed to sit next to your washing machine and make laundry day so much easier (and probably more fun too).

Once your clothes are dry, you're able to “feed” them into the machine and it'll eat them up. Once inside the machine, a robot takes over and folds your clothes perfectly every time.

Now you might be thinking, “I can fold my own clothes thank you very much,” but there's another major drawcard.

The nifty device, which will be available for pre-order in 2017, also has a optional steam to remove wrinkles from your clothes as it folds. No more ironing!

Unfortunately, all that laundry-folding magic comes with a sizable price tag... about $850 (R12 606).
