Robots Can Now Flawlessly Iron Clothes
Ironing clothes is not fun. But someone has to do it. Why not get a robot to get it done?
TEO is a robot with a camera and sensors that can do just that. Once you put a clothing item on its ironing board, TEO uses its camera to create a 3D representation of the garment and calculate the wrinkles local descriptor.
The robot takes into account all wrinkles and works the iron to smooth out each crease. TEO measures 1.8 meters tall, weighing at 80 kilograms.
