I don't get why this is necessary, unless you are just plain stupid and don't know how to do laundry.

My good how hard is it to sort clothes, LOL! My dear mother taught me how to sort clothes when I was five or six years old, it's really not that difficult, and you don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure it out either, ;-)

Seems like a solution in search of a problem.  In order to work it appears that each piece of clothing would have to have an RFID chip in it.  I'm not aware of any clothing of that sort available today.


But it begs the larger question, just how hard is it to sort laundry properly?  If you can't separate lights from darks and fine fabrics from jeans you have a much more serious issue to deal with.

Y'all just don't realize how many people don't have a clue. Go to a laundromat and watch.

It could have a slight benefit if you are completely blind. Otherwise as Matt said its an answer to a problem that no one is asking LOL.

What? Nobody commented on the ghetto production values? They couldn't even put the white backdrop far enough behind the subject to avoid shadowing? The audio levels aren't even properly adjusted. What a horrible video. I would be embarrassed to upload such a piece of crap.

Candy had something similar to this way back in the late 70's early 80s. It was in one of the appliance magazines I saw it.As you loaded the drum, it would talk to you to verify the fabric and'or color. Once there were enough pieces in the drum, it would ask you to close the door and select the options available with it.

I get the feeling this is some sort of University project for an engendering team.  It doesn't look or feel like a major company produced it.

My favorite part of the video is the soundtrack: A piano-driven instrumental version of The Cure's song In Between Days.


I'll sort my own clothes, thanks.

I think y'all are missing what they are really poking fun at -- Apple produces videos (either for TV ads or to show during the keynote addresses, like the ones for the World Wide Developers Conference) that have exactly that feel to it. Take a look at the video introducing the original iPad (linked below) and tell me they didn't copy most of the lines (with minor edits) onto their video.

Not to mention that the machine wouldn't be automatic enough for the truly lazy/unknowing, they'd still have to go hands-on with loading and following its sorting instructions.

I mid 80's I used to go to a laundry that was a couple blocks from one of our colleges, and those college boys were dumb as a box of rocks when it came time to do laundry. One couldn't figure out how to use a basic GE or Maytag top loader, they were clueless on sorting. I saw one washing his white undies and socks with a red shirt. I told him his whites will turn pink if he doesn't take out the red shirt. They were even more confused when they tried to use the double and triple loaders.

Yeah this is just ridiculous. People complain about doing laundry now. I usually tell them to imagine doing it with a wringer washer or even a washboard back before automatic washers were thought of. It's not hard to sort clothes. Lights, darks, whites, towels and denims.

GEE! People are stupid!

I still see this all the time at the dorm or at the laundromat when people just cram everything without sorting everything. Nothing has changed. This is so stupid! My parents would kill me if they saw me in dingy clothes.
