Smoth / Smart appliances


Ironing clothes is one of the most basic household chores in our daily life. In the past, ironing methods not only consume time but also occupy a lot of space.
So I designed this smart iron robot, which consists of front and back parts. It is clamped at both ends of clothing by magnetic adsorption technology. The function of the front part is heating and steam injection. The back part is a piece of automagical moving equipment. Users only need to clamp the robot on the clothes and turn on the switch,The robot will automatically complete the whole ironing process.
This design frees people from the traditional complicated housework.
