Laundry Folding

Designed by Professor Masahiko Inami and his team at Keio University,
Foldy the robot uses commands entered into a PC program along with a
ceiling-mounted camera to locate and properly fold your laundry every
time. After folding instructions for various types of clothing have
been entered into the program, Foldy can work autonomously. A RC
vehicle is probably not the most practical device for this purpose, but
I'm glad to see that someone has invested a lot of time and effort in
solving this critical problem.
