    I'll stick to a £30 Iron thanks. Cheaper and takes up way less room.

    To have an automated iron you need a Titan-Z worth $3000 and a robot worth $20,000 or more

    Maybe Nvidia will use this to iron out the asynchronous compute problems they have.

    There's more creases at the end of the video than the start. I thought the AI would be powerful enough to delegate this task like everyone else does.

    Following hot on the heels of "Watching paint dry .. for Windows"?
    I'll tell you - I lost my right arm twenty years ago - I can't use a prosthetic - and I still wouldn't choose to use a robot ironer!

    That was not what I was expecting to see, guess we're going to be ironing our clothes for the next 50 years at least *sigh* oh the shame..

    I had a weird image of this machine going nuts oneday and attacking a bunch of old people and ironing them to death whilst trying to get rid of their wrinkles.
