[Off-topic] [MIUI Resources Team] MIT's giving you the designer fashion that's going places

Last year, MIT and Stanford debuted a new type of robot that could crawl over the surface of your clothing with the use of magnets. Now, it appears to have gone high fashion. It’s no longer a “rovable,” it’s Project Kino (kinetic wearables).

The small robots now house an array of colorful shields and will ideally serve both functional and aesthetic purposes. The video shows them moving about a dress as “shape changing jewelry,” its wheels leaving marks across velvet in what Project Kino calls “etching,” and a brooch moving up a garment to become a microphone.

“We’re thinking of wearables as a personal assistant. We think in the future, when they can have a brain of their own, they can learn your habits, learn your professional style, and when they get smaller, they can blend into the things you wear,” Project Kino team member Cindy Hsin-Liu Kao said.

Their current size is certainly a hindrance, and most of the applications seem to be ornamental. Sure, these might be cool in a runway presentation, but do we need clunky robotic crawlies to show off the next time we attend a dinner party? Even the future of these things, according to Kao, sounds shiver-worthy. Smaller, with a brain? (Internally screams.) Perhaps that’s why they’re currently teaming up with designers. As Kao tells TechCrunch, “a lot of people saw them as really creepy.”

Selalu Percaya Bahwa Sesuatu Yang Indah Akan Terjadi !!!
Once again, I convince myself that technology takes small but safe steps at all people's events. I am impressed that there are such robots that put a scarf around your neck and other things. This is very useful, and they will help people with disabilities or are paralyzed, because they don't need to be someone to help them get dressed, but robots will do everything for them. It's very cool when you think that in a few years there will be robots that will dress and shorten pants and shoes and all that. I just imagine that I have a robot that puts my favorite women's crossbody bag on my back, perfectly, but a little, and it scares me.

I also think what I could really please my wife with. I would really like to give her something cool and luxurious in its own way What do you think it could be?

I think you do not need to think too long about the gift. A great choice for a gift for a girl, this of course will be chic underwear. Try to give it to her. I know a great store that sells such things as url= bra harness/url. There is a lot of everything to choose from and I think there you will definitely be able to find something from which your girl will be absolutely delighted. I think you should do it.
