Next step to the robotic house-maid... Answered
OK, so it's a fairly simple task for homo artifex, but a robot is now capable of folding towels.
It takes two minutes of sped-up video to fold the five towels (100 minutes in real time!!), but this is a huge breakthrough in robotics, because towels are not rigid, predictable objects.
The towels are different sizes, different colours, and start off screwed up.
You may be bored, but I'm impressed.
