Called "ridiculous, frivolous, and a waste of engineering talent" by people who clearly don't wash and fold their own laundry, Japanese start-up Seven Dreamers has come up with the Laundroid, a closet sized robot that "can fold a shirt in ten minutes." Despite the criticism, Panasonic has invested $60m in the project. Self-driving car? Please. Someone get Elon Musk on the phone, I want one of these stat.

There is still no price tag on the device, which is about the size of a wardrobe and uses artificial intelligence and image recognition technology to fold and stack clothes.
