LAS VEGAS, Dec. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- from ShowStoppers @ CES 2017 - One of the most hated household chores must be folding laundry. If not, it certainly has the title of "most tedious". Most of us own a dishwasher, a vacuum cleaner, a washing machine, a dryer and we can all agree that these technologies make our lives simpler, easier and more effective. Wouldn't it be great to have a solution to folding laundry?
In the 21st century, time is precious, something we don't take for granted. Laundry is a necessary chore that takes precious time away. Clothes come out of your washer, go into your dryer, once dry, they're stacked on a chair or couch and occasionally on half the bed. We've all been there, hoping someone would just make it disappear. We just prefer to be doing other things, like spending time with our family and friends. Well, the FoldiMate team heard those cries and created a solution.
Introducing the first practical and affordable laundry folding robot: FoldiMate Family™.
FoldiMate Family™ folds your laundry, it's that simple. All you do is take the dry items, hang each one on the clip and within a few minutes, your laundry is neatly folded, treated and even de-wrinkled. It takes less than 3 seconds to clip each item onto FoldiMate's Easy Clipping™ technology, making folding simple and quick. Imagine you have a friend who loves folding laundry for you.
FoldiMate can handle a wide variety of fabrics and garments. It will fold shirts, pants, towels and virtually anything that will fit inside of it such as pillow cases.
Although it sounds like folding magic, it will have some limitations. It is being designed to handle kids' sizes and up to XXL but it won't fold linen, underwear, socks or baby clothes for example.
CEO Gal Rozov has more than 20 years of experience working in the intersection of technology and business. He is also a family guy, who loves spending time with his wife and three kids.
"I created FoldiMate as my wife claims I am one of the worst laundry folders in the world. She's right. I hate it! There is a lot of laundry when you have three children and folding is tedious. I wanted to help her." Gal Rozov shares.
"We knew that others suffer from this chore, but we didn't expect such an incredible response when we released the FoldiMate concept video earlier this year which went viral. It has been viewed by people all around the world and we've seen it copied and edited into multiple languages. Nearly 200,000 customers have registered to learn when pre-orders are available and thousands have already paid a deposit to reserve their FoldiMate. Although we're still in the prototype stage, we decided to exhibit at CES and expand our fan base prior to the pre-order launch late 2017. We can't think of a better way to show our excitement and appreciation than to run a competition to win a free FoldiMate Family™ robot" says Gal Rozov.
Visit Foldimate's CES 2017 booth is #51015, Sands Expo, Level 1, Hall G to participate in the competition or meet the team. FoldiMate will also have a table top showcase at the ShowStoppers CES event.
The first FoldiMate Family™ units are planned to be shipped towards the end of 2018. For a limited time you can get a head start, by registering on FoldiMate's website www.foldimate.com and then pay a deposit to receive a 10% discount and be one of the first in your region to own it.
