Folks at MIT’s CSAIL have created a robot carpenter that can build custom furnitures.
To get this done, all the user have to do is customize ready-made furniture templates and as soon as you’re done, the robot will cut out the parts needed for you to begin. Although you will have to do the assembly yourself, the job has ready been made easier by the robot who cuts out the needed parts for you especially if you have zero experience with these sorts of things.
MIT’s AutoSaw system is still very “basic” for now, this means the robot is still limited to household objects such as desks, tables, stool and chairs, but soon as development continues it will be used for larger projects, and also for more complex tasks.
Above is a video showing the AutoSaw in action.
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology(MIT) is a private research university in Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States. Founded in 1861 in response to the increasing industrialization of the United States, MIT adopted a European polytechnic university model and stressed laboratory instruction in applied science and engineering. The Institute is traditionally known for its research and education in the physical sciences and engineering, but more recently in biology, economics, linguistics and management as well. MIT is often cited among the world’s best universities by various organizations. It was ranked as the world’s top university for 6 years in a row by QS.
