I'll install it right next to my kitchen cabinet/dishwasher combination from 1966.

I'd rather have a start button or a timer knob.

Otherwise when they turn their server off or they stop updating their app, your smart closet is now a closet.

If'n it ain't a top load drum washer it ain't cleanin' shiat. Dry cleaning is, was and always will be a racket. Kid comes home with unwashable stuff it gets returned or goes to goodwill after a few uses, and don't start with me about front loaders, you couldn't get a lace dolly clean in one of those.

I haven't had a job that required suits in about 15 years and I don't miss it at all.  $100 a week for laundry? Fark that noise.

This sort of gadget might actually make sense for someone who's spending $100/week on dry cleaning.

Five years since my last suit-required gig, but they didn't require something fancy enough to get married in, so I usually wore something I'd gotten at a big thrift store for $5.  If it got dirty, that just meant another trip to a big thrift store.
/meanwhile my boss was wearing $150 neckties.

I used to work at a dry cleaner, if you are dry cleaning any thing with spandex you might as well just wash it on cold and hang dry. Spandex turns the solvent red, so it's not going in the machine,but will cost just as much.

They've been around for at least five years.  I worked briefly at an electronics appliance store and we sold quite a few to military guys.  They liked using them on their uniforms.

If I ever start going back to the office regularly, this magic closet would pay for itself in a couple of months.

If it works as advertised, it is a steal at 10x the price, and will put the rest of the drycleaning industry out of business.
