This Robot Won’t Crush Your Skull, Just Lightly Pincher It

Remember that robot that folded laundry? Well, it’s at it again, earnestly trying to please it’s human overlords with mundane household tasks.  On the docket today?

Fine motor control and tactile cues.  Or, in other words, when to let go of an item when someone tries to take it from them, understanding when to stop its movement because it might damage something, and not crushing things with its terrifying robot strength.  Even as a PHD student repeatedly tries to mess with it.

Laundry folding robot just wants to be your friend.
