Dream Machine: Lego-Powered Shirt Folder


No, you are not dreaming.  This is indeed a video of an automatic T-shirt folding machine created by a Stanford University grad student using a Lego Mindstorms set.  After watching this clip, I have a sudden urge to take a course in mechanics so I can MacGyver myself a similar machine.
