Meet the robot learning to assemble IKEA furniture

A robot assembling an IKEA chair with the help of a human using a haptic feedback device.

Ambidex is a two-armed robot created by Naver Labs and it’s learning how to assemble an IKEA chair. A haptic feedback device controlled by a human acts as a medium between the robot and the human, teaching the robot how to perform tasks similar to how we do. Naver Labs hopes to expand the haptic device’s capabilities in the future and has even gotten it to play a game of table tennis.
