Pieter Abbeel and PR2 robot

Pieter Abbeel teaches the PR2 robot from Willow Garage a few new tricks. It can identify towels in a pile of laundry, pick them up and fold them rather quickly. It’s pretty amazing. Whenever it’ll be able to perform low-cost dentistry I’ll save some money and put my name on the waiting list.
