Robot Hopes to Dress Humans One Day, Sticks to Dummies for Now

by Conner Flynn

One day robots will enslave us, then kill us. I can’t see it going any other way. The only way it could be worse is if they captured us and dressed us up in uniforms first, because that just seems really demeaning.


Well, it looks like that day is coming thanks to researchers at the Nara Institute Of Science And Technology (NAIST) in Tokyo. These geniuses are working on a robot that will one day dress humans autonomously. Dress us like what though? That’s the question. The current prototype can help to put a T-shirt on a dummy in about 10 seconds.

That means, whether you like it or not, you are getting dressed, meatbag! Then you can report to your cage and await further instructions. Remember the old joke when a kid said to another kid, “Did your mother dress you this morning?” Well, actually it was a robot. Not my fault at all that I have a woman’s top and shorts on in November.
