Robots that will fold your laundry
This is “Brett” also known as The Berkeley Robot for the Elimination of Tedious Tasks. This guy can do simple household chores. Specifically, the robot can fold laundry and is part of an ongoing project by UC Berkeley’s Pieter Abbeel.
Folding towels might seem easy to us humans, but this is actually quite complicated for a robot to do. In fact it requires a method where the robot learns the tasks by seeing how humans do it. Abbeel explains:
For robots to be integrated in unstructured or changing environments, such as a typical human household, they must develop the ability to learn from human experts and to even teach themselves.
The hope is to have these robots perform everyday chores for the elderly or disabled so that they can live more independently.
