This was pretty cool. Society has to start preparing for a day when Robots can make every sandwich at Arby's or Burger King and can work non stop without breaks. I was even reading about virtual C.E.O.'s That will be able to interact with everyone in the company instantly including the Janitor.


Visitors to the inaugural Consumer Electronics Show (CES) Asia in Shanghai on Monday were cooked food by a robotic kitchen, the first of its kind according to its creators.

Designed by London-based Moley Robotics, the automated kitchen consists of two large robotic arms which can construct dishes based on an iTunes-like library of recipes. The arms were designed by the Shadow Robot company, which also provides technologies to NASA, and consist of 20 motors, 24 joints and 129 sensors allowing them to mimic the movements and dexterity of human hands.

Well designed


I would definitely love to have something like this in my home. I'd still like to have the option of cooking on my own, but this is incredibly convenient. If it functions exactly like it does in the advertisement (which it will eventually) I would have no problem cutting out a good hour of my day due strictly to cooking food.

nifty , but what if someone hacks your chef ? a lot of sharp implements about.. , and at the very least hydraulic fluid in your burger

The same could be said about anything now a days. Everything has a computer in it. What if someone hacks your brand new oven to automatically turn on? Viewing the concept this way, it seems a bit odd for a hacker to also be wanting to break into someone's house just to hack the appliances.

I wouldn't be concerned about it, personally.

One of the main reasons people eat unhealthy food is because of the lack of time or energy to prepare a decent meal.

This could go a long way toward fighting the obesity problem IF (and that's a huge if) they made it affordable for the average person.

Unfortunately, I have a feeling this will be something only the high upper class and rich can afford.

hacking an oven , which by design is ok with long periods of being on , is a lot different and probably a lot less fun than hacking a pair of remote arms, maybe you're an oven kind of , erm whatever you are ?

Yes its seems nice one to have !
It needs incredients and what happens when robot starts ordering all the incredients it thinks it must have. How does it smell the incredients if the meat is fresh etc... hmm

LOL, I just had the mental image of it having a kitchen accident/fire and it's arms flailing around in the air.




Otherwise it's pretty cool.

Maybe it'll grab a fire extinguisher like the robot arm in Iron Man...

or even if the meat is off..

sooner or later where all going to be jarred if this continues, abled bodied people shouldn't be replacing important skills like cooking their own food, whats next ? personalised scrub downs in the shower, robots to wipe your arse ?

use robots for the things we cant do not the things we can

ide say it was some use to someone wheelchair bound, but that counter looks high and hot.

I agree it certainly has certain advantages, like cooking for you before you get home and cooking healthy food for those that do not cook but, as long as I have Italian blood in my veins, I will refuse to ever have this gadget in my house... the kitchen is my territory!! lol

S&F!

Ya know what...I'll do the cooking myself. Its what I love .
But a kitchen that flushes when I'm done would be great.

I don't know why, but something about the video seems soooooooo stupid. It reminds me of those old movies which tried to depict the future. I believe in the future we'll watch that video and cringe for a dozen reasons.

Reminds me of the moving sidewalk which was a popular stupid idea. And the other one I like is everybody flying around with jet packs.

I think the TV dinner is probably already made by robots and more cheaply. Anybody wnat to check? Somehow I can easily imagine industrial machines or robots moving the precooked foods onto the tray and packaging it. Then it's sent in freezer trucks to the box stores where the lazy people buy em and throw em in the microwave when hungry. Infinitely easier.

Or if they make super affordable solar electricity powered Aga's generally available, it is easy to put meat and veg in whole the night before in the various constant temperature ovens and the next day roast meat and veg, you can put whole butternut squash, pumpkin, potatoes etc and the next day it is all done, fresh, natural food, slow cooked overnight.

Hmmmmm......Houston, I think we have a problem...

Yeah, is it just me or am i seeing global unemployment spikeing over a massive amoumt of time???!!?

Corps in Asia will be affected as well.....

ETA (estimated time of arival) for this event to see the ripple effect: 2-5 years based on technology and robotics evolution.

It will take robots to fix other robots due to nanotech being in place already. Technology has always shaped a nation and our world. (No doom porn intended)

I don't, if anything i could see this thing as being a great assistant in the kitchen. Like any trained monkey you will still need people to monitor it for taste, consistency, etc.

Could make things like Food Trucks more profitable....plenty of applications in many areas.
