Thanks to Hackaday for showing me this: Santa’s beard-combing robot:
OK, this is much more of a shitty robot in the [Simone Giertz] school of wicked funny machines than it is a serious robotics project. But props to [Norbert] for completeness — the code that wiggles the two servos that get the job (almost) done is even posted up on GitHub.
While it might be shitty in execution, there’s nothing crap about the idea, particularly for people with poor motor skills. And if Santa needs a robot to comb his hair, MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) has that covered too.
