If you think common places where you would find robots are manufacturing plants, operating rooms, or homes, you are in for a surprise. The robots are now on your clothes. Yes, you heard it right. And, to make it a wee bit more interesting, these wearable robots on your clothes can change your style and enhance your looks.
MIT’s Project Kino (kinetic wearables) has small robots that can move around the surface of your clothes. The fashion robots cling to the clothes using tiny magnets. The name signifies the ability of small robots to move around.
While moving along the surface of the clothing, these robots can arrange themselves in different patterns, giving you a different and smarter look. It’s a sort of modular jewelry, or robotic jewelry, that can complement your looks to suit different occasions and moods. To further jazz up things, the robots can move along a certain type of fabrics and etch a pattern as it moves. So, you can have a temporary pattern drawn on your dress, which you can change anytime.
Wearable Robots? It Goes Beyond the Fashion
It’s not just about making you look better. The scientists behind the small fashion robots have been experimenting with some utility functions performed by these robots. They can move around to loosen or tighten the strings of your hood; keep your shirt tucked in neatly all the time; double up as a microphone when a brooch moves up your dress; and so on. So, the applications could be extensive. Sensors placed in your clothing sync up with these small fashion robots to make your clothing futuristic, responsive, and stylish.
