Johanna S. Wisthaler, By Water to the Columbian Exposition, 1894
Here's a trailer for the recent movie about Joy-more than just mops.
If Joy put her fine brain to work on the challenge of making ironing easier, I'm sure she could come up with improvements....well, actually she did, with her version of the steamer but I found these devices unsatisfactory because all they do is take out the "easy wrinkles", the ones I remove the lazy way by hanging the clothing in the bathroom. Steaming won't make a collar look good, or put a crease down a shirt sleeve, or down a pair of pants.
Maybe these robotic machines will do better, although they'd take up a lot of room in the closet.
