A new world record has been broken, and it's for robotic laundry folding.
For some reason, every time we show off GARY to new people, one of the first questions we get asked is, "Yes, but can it fold my laundry"?. Come on, people, is folding laundry really THAT terrible? (just kidding, we hate doing it as much as you do, it's the worst!). Well, like we keep telling everyone - the answer is yes. Gary CAN fold your laundry, and he can do it all day and not sigh even once! However, a robot named "Speedfolding" (seen in the video below) just broke the world record for laundry folding (for robots) at a whopping 30-40 garments per hour, usually finishing each within two minutes. We are talking about randomly placed shirts and pants, no tricks or special types of clothes. Just regular old laundry thrown in front of the robot. And yes, we know you can do it much faster, but this is not a competition between humans and robots. This is about you going to work in the morning and finding your laundry washed, dried, and folded when you return home. We don't know about you, but we can't put a price on that - Never having to fold your laundry ever again?! Sign us up now!
