Well, ironing can be a time-consuming and boring and the results aren’t always satisfactory. Keeping this in mind, the UK based engineers Rohan Kamdar and Trevor Kerth invented an automatic ironing machine – Effie, which will iron your clothes for you.
According to the engineers, Brits hate to iron their clothes (to be honest, nobody likes it). To end this irritating and time-consuming ironing ritual, the startup is developing the Effie, so you’ll never have to iron your clothes again.
The machine has undergone over 40 prototypes in the last two odd years and is still in the modification phase. Effie claims to iron 12 items of clothing at a time in three minutes. It comes with wheels at the bottom for ease of mobility and is compact enough to be stored in a corner after use.
It knows the differences between different fabrics and therefore uses various methods to iron them. It knows how to handle a delicate blouse and a cotton shirt. Any fabric – cotton, silk, viscose, polyester, denim; clothing with any color, shape, and size can be put into it.
The product is said to be ‘easy to use’; all you have to do is take your wet and wrinkled clothes out of washing machine and hang them on the specially designed hangers on Effie’s pull-out rail. At a click of the button, Effie will dry your clothes and its steam treatment technique will get rid of all the creases, leaving the clothes pressed and all this in just three to six minutes.
Effie ironing machine hasn’t been released yet and is still undergoing modifications as to improvise its efficiency. According to the makers, it will be ready to hit the market by the end of the year, no word on the price though.
If this machine is really what it is said to be, then it surely will replace the tradition ironing methods and make the process easier and time-saving.
