Washing machines are perhaps one of the most common household appliances across the world.

With it, you can save time and money compared with washing clothes by hand or availing of laundry services.

However, the mundane task of folding clothes still remains to be a dilemma for many. Sometimes you just wish someone would invent a machine that’s also capable of doing this boring chore.

Well, the long wait is finally over.

Japan’s Laundroid aims to make your life much easier.

Created through the collaboration of Seven Dreamers Laboratories, Panasonic, and Daiwa House Industry, this folding machine is expected to revolutionize the way you do your laundry.

Laundroid has been introduced at the 2015 CEATEC Consumer Electronics Show held in Tokyo.

The demonstration involved a lady tossing a shirt into the Laundroid and then 5 minutes later, the machine opens up and shows the shirt neatly-folded.

Sure, it‘s still disappointingly slow but the inventors are currently working on improving that. In the mean time, we can all take comfort on the fact that a machine can do all the folding for us while we do other important things. Such as cooking or maybe watching some Netflix!

The laundry-folding machine will begin to hit stores some time next year.

It is anticipated that the Laundroid will be available to the market by 2016. No price has been announced so far but I guess it’s safe to predict that this appliance will not come cheap.

In times when renewable energy sources are of great importance, this ingenious invention is just what we need.

Invented by Filipino siblings Aisa and Ralph Mijeno with the help of Engineer Joeffrey Firas, the lamp consists of a plastic bottle, water, and some salt. Using only a glass of water and two tablespoons of a salt, a single lamp can provide eight hours of light. The lamp can also be powered with seawater, which is convenient especially for those living near coastal areas.

The lamp uses water and salt to produce light.
