Seen here shooting straight for the nuts, a robot designed to create and climb creases in fabric crawls up a man's pant leg. Don't worry though, I'm sure the robot's inventors created the thing out of necessity and not just for no reason.
Its creators say that Clothbot could be a tiny pet that climbs around your body, or even a moving phone that sits on your shoulder, leaving your hands free.
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand I was wrong. *slamming head on desk* Stupid stupid stupid!
Hit the jump for a brief video of the climber in action.
Thanks to Rev Dr Dom, who knew this day would come and has been practicing not wearing pants for years now. He is like a no-pants PRO.
