Chinese Scientists Develop Clothbot

As per reports, scientists from the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Chinese University of Hong Kong have developed a clothbot. The tiny robot crawls up at one’s clothes with the use of a gripper wheels and creates folds on them.

The clothbot will be presented at the 2012 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA), which is going to take place in St. Paul. It seems that the robot has been without keeping any aim in the mind as it plainly keeps on crawling on the clothes without any mission.

The robot weighs more than 140 grams and has a tail, which will help it to climb at the clothes. Author Yuanyuan Liu and colleagues were of the view that their research will help humans to free their hands. It will act as a tiny pet or a movable phone.

Experts said that though the clothbot is tiny and useful, but these days, many good robots have come which have made life quite easy. The research, which they are going to present at the conference, is known as "System and Design of Clothbot: a Robot for Flexible Clothes Climbing”. Liu said that the robot easily climbs up the ball irrespective of the folds, a cloth has.
