A robotic laundry chute has taken the internet by storm this month. A video shared on Twitter of the world’s first vacuum-powered laundry chute has racked up over 11 million views and thousands of replies.
What is the Laundry Jet?
The Laundry Jet is the first vacuum-powered laundry chute that transports laundry from any room with ports installed, to the laundry room. Unlike a traditional laundry chute, the Laundry Jet can be used regardless of if a home is a multi-level or single-story because it is not reliant solely on gravity. It can be installed seamlessly into any custom laundry room design and existing laundry rooms. It has been highlighted as a convenient and safe way to transport clothes to the laundry room from any room in the house.
While the laundry jet may provide a solution for those living with mobility issues, the high-tech home addition has received an overwhelming amount of negative reactions online:

Other users voiced concern over the dangers of a suction device concerning household pets:
The Laundry Jet system is a pricey investment in the name of convenience. It ranges in price from $2,400 to $15,000 depending on the size and number of ports. The pricing includes an estimate for the pipe but does not include installation or delivery. Installation can take from 1-3 days depending on the house. Free quotes are available within 1-3 days using their online quote request form.
