The UC Berkeley researchers behind that breakthrough are now attempting to teach a robot a new chore: pairing socks. "The PR2 is presented with two socks. It then classifies each sock as either "inside" or "outside" and flips accordingly. Once both socks are in the proper orientation, it pairs them." (The video is sped up 15x.)

@tsarstepan,
I haven't worn socks for years, so what can the robot do for me?

@ebrown p,
Nah, I think it must be my one cup bra. Both have gone south but one hangs high, one hangs low.

Is the price of the robot greater than that of a lifetime's supply of presorted socks.
