SewbotSewbo is a robot sewing machine hybrid that can sew shirts all by itself.

The shirt is stiffened with something that is water soluble so the robot can more easily sew it together and then the stiffener is removed at the end.

Sewbo states:

Despite widespread use in other industries, automation has failed to find a place in apparel manufacturing due to robots’ inability to handle limp, flexible fabrics. Sewbo avoids these hurdles by temporarily stiffening fabrics, making it easy for conventional robots to build clothes as if they were made from sheet metal.
