Chainsaw robot makes furniture for your home

By | February 6, 2013

Yes, you have read the title correctly!

Some interior design students have a pretty wild imagination (and very likely some friends with robotics expertise and access to some cool hardware:) ) as they actually designed and programmed a robot that can make a couple of stools out of a piece of wood. The robot is a standard Kuka industrial robot with a chainsaw end effector. With some clever programming, the high precision robot can curve a tree trunk with millimeter accuracy into 2-3 usable stools.

Move over 3D printers; this robot takes the cake!

Enjoy the video of the chainsaw wielding robot in action.

    This sure does blow away the concept of 3D printers. I think these interior design students are amazing to think of a robot that can actually make wood stools and use a chainsaw to do it.
