The project Microfactories has developed an automated flow for remake of garments that would otherwise be considered as waste. By using Eton Systems overhead conveyor system together with an AI that can detect defects and suggest design operations, the machine automatically adds value in form of design elements that repairs and covers up defects. This provides an opportunity for retailers to sell their products more than once and adding value to otherwise discarded clothing.
