In the near future, common household appliances could take on entirely new forms that are more convenient and autonomous than before; Panasonic's 'Sustainable Maintainer' is an example of this, serving as a futuristic washing machine that can fold one's clothes.
This high-tech laundry machine is perfectly integrated into the walls, offering an unobtrusive household aid. To activate the machine, users simply tap the walls, prompting one of several usable compartments to open.
After placing laundry in one of the compartments, the machine will identify the clothing item's labels, treating the items with the ideal temperature and pressure conditions. After the clothes have been washed, the machine's arms will fold the clothing items into a neat pile, providing a streamlined and integrated laundering process.
