Starting in 2018, you might never have to fold laundry again. Laundroid was at CES this week, showing off garments folded by machine.

Using a combination of image recognition and algorithms, it currently takes Laundroid 3-10 minutes to fold an item. Not winning any speed records, but dumping your clothes in a drawer, walking away, and having them appear on the above shelves folded still has its perks.

While the refrigerator-sized Laundroid on display was only a model, the Tokyo-based company promised a functioning unit at next year's show, and that the technology could be worked into Panasonic washers and dryers starting in 2018.
