RoboWig: A Robot Friend Who Will Brush Your Hair
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a robot friend who could brush your hair? MIT has you covered. Here’s more from SlashGear:
The researchers equipped the robot with a soft-bristled brush with sensors attached to a robot arm. The sensors allow forces during brushing to be measured and are combined with something called a closed-loop control system. That system takes feedback from an output and automatically acts without any human interaction. The system allows the robot to take into account the length of the stroke and the potential pain caused to the user while considering the time needed to brush.
