In 2019, FoldiMate is launching its laundry-folding robot, and we got a glimpse of it on the showroom floor at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

FoldiMate says its robot "will fold most types of shirts, blouses, or pants from age 6 to adult size XXL. It will also fold standard size towels and pillowcases."

What it is: A robot that can fold your clothes.

Who makes it: FoldiMate, based in Israel.

Why it's the best: No one likes folding laundry. FoldiMate's robotic solution may be a bit large, but you can't argue with the results.

Where and when you can get it: FoldiMate is aiming for a "late 2019" launch. You can add your name to the waitlist on its website.

How much it will cost: FoldiMate says the target price will be $980.
