The MIT offshoot company Ori is hoping to make small living spaces feel and function better with the help of robotics. Their “shape-shifting” walk-in wardrobe (called Pocket Closet) can be bought online and shipped as a flat-pack to your door. The Pocket Closet is a set of shelves from the outside, but opens along a motorized track to reveal the closet space. The wardrobe is controlled via button, app or voice and promises some 30 square feet of space, according to founder and lead researcher Hasier Larrea. Find out more at Fast Company.
