A Robotic Cord Can Change Shapes

Thanks to MIT that researchers have invented a smart robotic string that can be used for multiple purposes. This smart computer programmed string can adopt many shapes and forms. It can help in exercise, holding things, adopting shapes, acts as scale and many others. So this smart string can also help in forming itself as lamp, mobile handle and can trigger any device. Let’s take a small overview that tells how a robotic cord can change shapes.

Smart Rope Could Change Dimension of Technology

According to researchers, this looks ordinary smart rope but it is capable of change the dimension of technology. This innovative technology can be put in use for different use and can do many things for older people and patients. This smart string can also look after the kids and pets. Numerous advantages can be got from this simple but smart rope.

This smart robotic arm can also take mobile or device notification and act accordingly. It can trigger the third party health provider in case of any emergency. MIT MediaLab has named it as LineFORM also released a video to demonstrate its functions to confirm this miraculous invention. However this invention is under phase of continuous testing and can soon be available for ordinary people in the future for many types of assistance.

Critics / Review

This iRope or iCord could be a phone, lamp, soft morphing and it could change to many shapes on demand. This smart technology rope could help many people including sportsmen, patients and disabled people as well. It can open new doors of interface, display and HCI.
