MIT scientists have developed a magic carpet that can automatically detect whether a human is wearing a suit.

“The real magic comes when the carpet can distinguish between people wearing a coat and people wearing nothing,” said J. Scott Miller, a professor of computer science and engineering at MIT and a co-author of a paper describing the research in the journal Science.

The technology has been developed for an autonomous system called the Nanoscale Humanoid Robotic Framework (NHHRF), which uses a special type of DNA to recognise a person’s features and identify them based on the characteristics of their clothing.

“If you are wearing a blue suit and you have a white shirt and you don’t have a tie, the system will pick that up and say, ‘oh, that’s me’,” Miller said.

“It doesn’t know you’re wearing a white suit and doesn’t care if you have one on, so it can recognize that you have two different suits and go, ‘well, that could be me’.”

In order to be able to recognise the person wearing a jacket, the nanoscale platform is programmed to recognise three things about them: a jacket that’s tight and the jacket that is open, and then a white coat or a blue coat.

Miller said the technology was also able to identify whether a person was wearing a scarf, a hat or a jacket over their face.

The platform is able to detect when people wear a coat, or a white jacket.

Miller and his colleagues developed a system that was programmed to detect if a person wore a coat or white jacket in two different scenarios.

In one, the algorithm could determine whether a jacket was worn by a person wearing blue, a white or a black suit.

In the other, the algorithms could identify whether someone was wearing one of the three types of clothing.

In both cases, the technology detected whether the person was dressed in a blue or white coat, and was able to predict that the person had a white, blue or black suit on.

In other words, the platform could recognise whether a wearer of a coat was wearing blue or a green jacket.

But what if the person did not wear a jacket?

“If they wore nothing, we could tell it to tell us something else,” Miller said, “but it would still be able identify the person.”

The technology is still in the early stages of development, and there is still a lot of work to be done before it can be used to recognise people who wear suits, Miller said in a statement.

“This research demonstrates the potential of nanoscales in the detection of human clothing,” he said.

Miller told the BBC that he believes that with this technology, there is an opportunity for people to have a new experience when they wear a suit, even if they are not wearing one.

“You could go to the park, go to a restaurant, wear a white dress and get the same experience that you get in a suit,” he told the broadcaster.

“What we’re doing with this is looking at how we can give you the same kind of experience with your suit.”
