Hello~ I'm Nootly. Mostly Noot, or about ten other variations of that. I'm something-or-other in gender and prefer they/them pronouns. This is a personal blog but I also use it for my art! A lot of my side fandoms change but there will always be Homestuck. My OTP is johnkat and this is also a part-time Karkat appreciation blog.
Robots that will fold your laundry
This is “Brett” also known as The Berkeley Robot for the Elimination of Tedious Tasks. This guy can do simple household chores. Specifically, the robot can fold laundry and is part of an ongoing project by UC Berkeley’s Pieter Abbeel.
Folding towels might seem easy to us humans, but this is actually quite complicated for a robot to do. In fact it requires a method where the robot learns the tasks by seeing how humans do it. Abbeel explains:
For robots to be integrated in unstructured or changing environments, such as a typical human household, they must develop the ability to learn from human experts and to even teach themselves.
The hope is to have these robots perform everyday chores for the elderly or disabled so that they can live more independently.

(Marginalised Orientations, Gender Alignments, and Intersex)
- a blanket term referring to everyone who isn’t a dyadic cisgender heterosexual and heteroromantic person.
- it’s shorter, more inclusive and easier to pronounce than LGBTQIAP+
- not a slur like “queer”
- doesn’t have a history of including dyadic cishet kinksters, paedophiles, or rapists like GSRM (Gender, Sexual and Romantic Minorities)
- doesn’t include dyadic cishet women while excluding binary trans men like MOGII (Marginalised Orientations, Gender Identities, and Intersex)
- Allies can’t take the “A”, because “Marginalised Orientations, Gender Allies, and Intersex” wouldn’t make the least bit of sense
