I don’t know if you agree, but I feel ironing sucks! I wonder why some people claim it is therapeutic – I hate having to take my time ironing one cloth, I hate how I try to avoid making more creases! And don’t get me started on those buttoned shirts of mine! I should probably stop now, but you get the picture?
….But what if you can get a Robot that will iron your clothes perfectly? (Stop thinking about the cost for once!). A team of engineers developed a robot that will make sure you never have to worry about ironing your clothes and it does this perfectly without burning your clothes, can I hear a Hallelujah?
The team published a paper on the arXiv server via Medium on how they were able to use two sensors made from Xbox Kinect that will scan the surface of whatever it needs to iron then finds the best way to smoothen the creases. According to them
“Experimental results show that using our wrinkle analysis algorithm, our robot is able to iron the cloth surface and effectively remove the wrinkles.”
AND IT WORKS!!
The only issue disclosed is the fact that it might not be as fast as humans, but I’d rather take this over having to iron my clothes.
This is one robot I will gladly say, PLEASE SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY
