... for a robot.

US scientists have developed a robot which can fold and stack towels

... but it takes 25 minutes!... and they're very small towels.

At that rate of progress how long will it take them to develop one that can do the ironing?

I know Red Dwarf is only fiction, but I remembered a scene where Kryten was doing the ironing!
