Folding laundry is increasingly the holy grail for robotics innovators, if the various autonomous devices created for that purpose on display at CES 2018 was any indication. The latest iteration of the Laundroid laundry folding robot uses computer vision to identify what item of clothing it needs to tackle, but at $16,000, it would be nice if it could handle each individual item in less than 10 minutes. But if you think of it as an overnight, water-saving and eco-friendly dishwasher for folding clothes, then maybe it is a tedium saver.

University of Missouri researchers have developed sensor- and camera-equipped robotic towers that roam corn fields grabbing data on temperature, humidity, and light, as well as heights and other measurements in order to create 3D images of the crops. The images are then used for research to help develop drought-resistant corn with the aim of reducing world hunger, a problem that definitely needs a solution.

Optimizing your baseball or golf swing with technology is no longer the sole purview of professional teams. Blast Vision, a new iOS app, uses computer vision to capture and analyze clips and videos of your swings, then provides tips and overlays graphic visualizations onto the replays with metrics such as ball speed, launch angle and approximate carry distance. The rest, of course, is practice, practice, practice.
