Ironing Robot

Possible? Apparently. Labor saving? No. But let's all show the wives to legitimize our relentless robotics pursuits. "I do it all for you, honey."


  • Although fabric pattern cutting has been automated for years, anything else dealing with cloth (e.g. sewing, ironing, etc.) is a nearly insurmountable challenge for automation. The actual ironing is the easy part. Positioning and moving the cloth is another matter altogether.

    So sewing sweatshops are still a thing and probably will be for some time to come.
