Laundroid was a laundry-folding machine and home robot, used to automatically wash, dry, iron, sort and fold clothes to a dedicated closet. It was dubbed to be the worlds first laundry folding robot, and was planned to go on sale in Japan first, and subsequently, in a limited number, in the United States. Release date was set to 2017, with pre-orders starting on March 2017.
In 2019, Seven Dreamers announced bankruptcy.
Its image-recognition system and robotic arms took 3 to 10 minutes to pick and fold each item, or overnight for a load of laundry.
In November 2016, Seven Dreamers announced it has secured an extra $60 million in Series B Funding led by Panasonic Corp., Daiwa House Industry Co., and SBI Investment Co.
