So CES 2017 is behind us, but that doesn’t mean it has been forgotten.
Thousands of people passed through our booth, and we can’t express our appreciation enough to everyone who was willing to be interviewed and/or taken part in our social competition.
For those who were not at CES, the competition was for either creative videos in our booth or photos of whiteboard messages. The participants then had to share the photo or video on either Twitter, Instagram or Facebook with the hashtags #NeedAFoldiMate and #CES2017.
We had some great whiteboard messages and some really cool and funny videos. It has been a difficult choice, and we have decided that there were so many good submissions that we had to mention a few of them.

FoldiMate Family™: The robotic machine that will fold your laundry simpler, quicker and like a pro
