There are few things more boring than folding clothes. And it's about damned time we had a friendly robot to do it for us, isn't it? Well, today's our lucky day, sort of!
A group of super-geniuses at Berkeley invented a robot that folds clothes. It uses "a novel vision-based grasp point detection algorithm" to allow it to detect where the corners of a piece of cloth are so it can fold it perfectly. Great, right? Well, sort of. It's very, very slow. As in, it'll fold five towels over the course of an hour and 40 minutes. That's pretty ridiculous. Come and talk to me when your robot can fold towels in only a half an hour, like me.
