(CNBC) Japanese company Seven Dreamers demoed its laundry-folding robot, Laudroid at CES last week. The machine was set up in a mock living room and is about the size of a very tall dresser. Preorders for Laundroid start this fall. The robot will be initially available in Japan, the U.S. and parts of China for $16,000.
Laundroid can organize clothing either by family member or type. It’s also WiFi connected and comes with an app that tracks everything the machine folds, creating a type of virtual closet. It takes about five hours for Laundroid to fold a full load and it doesn’t work with socks.
