Sewbo: The First Robot to Make an Entire Shirt



 The future is officially here; for the first time in history a robot just made an entire garment.  Sewbo is a robot that takes fabrics and feeds it into a sewing machine to create a shirt.  Chemicals are applied to the fabric first in order to stiffen the fabric.  This allows the robot to use suction to pick up the fabric pieces.  The rest is easy... well the robot makes it look easy.  Check out the footage below to see the robot in action!
