"It's much easier to get a plane to fly itself than it is to get a robot to fold a towel."

In other news, back from Eastercon, which was particularly awesome this year. Iain Banks, Ben Goldacre, Mitch Benn, explosions, Old Rosie, film previews from the SF London film festival, talks on fusion power, Herschel, non-Euclidean geometry, allergies, climate change scepticism and the ethics of Dollhouse. Among many other things.

That's an impressive bit of robotics; although less so when you find out it's sped up by a factor of 50!

This is especially funny as I'm currently listening to some industrial ambient stuff from the auralapocalypse podcast. Perfect soundtrack. ;)

Glad to hear you had fun at Eastercon.

I guess Moore's law will take care if the speed.

Though given the length of time it looks at the towel after initially picking it up, and from several angles, I'm guessing a huge part of the problem is simply locating the corners.
