P20352: Foldify


Project Summary Project Information

Foldify is a project that aims to assist individuals with the task of folding clothes, helping put time back into their days. This is particularly beneficial to families, as well as disabled people who struggle with mobility. The main objective is to build a quiet, portable machine that is capable of quickly folding clothing (t-shirts, pants, towels), and then dispensing the folded pile for easy retrieval. The machine should be able to detect the type of clothing and fold them using the standard technique. To ensure the safety of the user, the machine must be enclosed, to keep all mechanical operations inaccessible to the user. The customers of Foldify are the original kick-starters of the project, Musab Al-Smadi and Steven McClusky. Their endeavors are being funded by the Simone Center at RIT. They then plan to market to their own customers.
