Japanese robot company Seven Dreamers has set a release date for the world's first laundry folding robot called "Laundroid", a refrigerator-sized robot. It will go on sale in 2017.

Users can throw in unsorted clothes into Laundroid's drawer . Using artificial intelligence, the robot will identify, sort and fold clothes accordingly to their types and styles. Folded clothes will be stored in shelves located inside its body.

Pre-orders will start in March next year. Unfortunate for the world's lazy population, who desperately need an extra hand in sorting laundry, the robot will only be available in Japan.
