Humanoid Robot at Madrid’s Charles III University Irons Clothes

In the BBC report, professor Victores noted that next steps in R&D will focus on speeding up the robot to a more typical pace when ironing, and to extending its training so that it can perform many other common household tasks. 

This project at Madrid’s Charles III University is just one example in the rapidly advancing world of humanoid robot development.  Researchers, worldwide, are creating full size humanoids with grasping hands to master an enormous range of generalized tasks.
