MIT’s New Robot Brushes Your Hair

It may look like a hairbrush strapped to a robot arm. Oui quand même un peu. Je comprends l'usage du computer vision mais la partie est juste pour le buzz.

Whether you care to admit it or not, hair is important to self-image, and not being able to deal with it yourself feels like a real loss of independence. To help people with limited mobility, researchers at MIT CSAIL have created a hair-brushing robot that combines a camera with force feedback and closed-loop control to adjust to any hair type from straight to curly on the fly. They achieved this by examining hair as double helices of soft fibers and developed a mathematical model to untangle them much like a human would — by working from the bottom up.
