Hate folding clothes? Then Landroid should do the trick. Created by Japan-based Seven Dreamers, this high-tech robot uses artificial intelligence and a special image processing to identify various items of clothing and then fold them. To be more specific, it boasts multiple robotic arms to pick up the clothes, which are then scanned by cameras, and then transmits the data via WiFi for artificial intelligence to analyze the object, as well as a neural network containing 256,000 images of different clothing items. One caveat: you’ll need a few hours for it to finish folding a load of laundry, as one shirt takes about 5 minutes to fold. Continue reading for another video and more information.
“Clothing items are analyzed piece by piece in order to relay information to the robot arms, but the machine uses the data of the type, size, and color of the clothing to sort it in different ways. A companion app will keep track of every piece of clothing analyzed by the Laundroid, and let users categorize clothes by household member or item. It’s essentially an online wardrobe organizer,” according to The Verge.
