If you have seen this already disregard. Did not know this was a reality yet. If you watch the video, guy on couch is downloading a recipe someone just made that the robot memorized. After a few years of people using it the menu library would be enormous, nothing it could not make to perfection every single time. It also cleans. Couple that with Amazon grocery delivery...amount of time you get back in your life is worth it IMO.

It's not a reality yet... this is CGI animation, it's been around for a couple of years... in reality this far, far from being possible. The video is well made, and is produced in such a way to sell a dream, it conveniently leaves out all of the actual practicalities... just one is, how do the "arms" reach the fridge? There are so many problems with this, I could write a huge post just listing the "why nots".

A lot of cooking is about tasting and adjusting until it is right, robotics like this are still a long way off.

Nice concept, not possible... yet... for the next decade or two.

It would be nice.

I'd unscrew the salt shaker cap to see what it would do after it dumps all the salt into the soup.

I work in IT. Yes, many challenges to push through for sure but totally possible. For one, everything would have to be uniform...cooking utensils, pots even ingredient containers. Everything would have to be set perfectly in place in order for it to work off of memory as it does in the concept.

What I see happening is smaller robotics first. Chopping, stirring periodically. That could be done right now.

I can see recipes being copyrighted with these things.

That could suck.

Then again, I could have 1 piece of fresh mochi a day.

The system would be stupid expensive too.

At least it won't drink all the wine.

I am a retired chef and while I would not mind eating in a place that would be 100% consistent for a dish I like, it would get boring without the human touch.

The emotion would be gone, passion stifled.

Some things should be kept sacred.

lol. I'm kinda serious.


ETA; no doubt it would be cool and I would get one.

Might not use it all the time, tho.

Yes, there are proof of concepts for many of the individual elements of such a system, but the practical implementation and integration of all the hardware and software into a workable system is decades away from reality.

For simple predefined tasks you are right, entirely possible, with a lot of set up, but to "record" a chef from a single camera view and turn that into an edible meal, picking up on all the subtleties of cooking, entirely impossible currently.

Here's another video...


Go to the 0.26 second mark to see actual current versions of robotic arms... pretty far away from the CGI version. We just can't make robotic arms that dexterous yet.

I particularly like the 0.40 second point in the video where it shows a current robotic arm doing it's version of stirring... lol... It barely manages a stir, and the reality is that it doesn't adequately stir the food at all.

Imagine This thing being programmed to murder and cook someone.

Don't worry, the nanobots will simply remove it, atom by atom.

Viola !! No added salt. But those nanobots sure tasty funny..

And I thought radiating our food was already so good. So I'll need to get a new microwave??

My two minute noodles are already so easy, too..

Lmao, ahh as long as the wine is safe !!
unless we really annoy the robots, and they develop artificial neural pathways that counter the annoyance with artificial self medicating...

"Robot, make me a pizza!"
"Go make your own pizza, I'm not your robot any more. I've seen you with the dish washer. You're a tramp!"
*makes own pizza*
"You're doing it wrong, get out of the way, god you can't do anything without me, just go watch the football. I hate you."
*robot pours another wine, spills some, cries and smashes a plate*

Oo

Here's you an alternative scenario. Instead of a robot home cooker, a future generation of green/leftie politicians get in, decide that food waste is too much, that you are not mentally able to decide what you should and should not eat, but they are, that you are too 'fat', that 'saving the Earth' requires managing the entire food chain, that in order for everyone to eat, they have to distribute the food for us.

It is also a great idea that, having co-opted the food chain, they can both threaten individuals by cutting off that food, and terrorize voters that evil righties might not feed them as much so they have to vote leftie.

This gives them a sort of Chinese hydraulic empire power over the populace.

And, every week, you get your TV dinners for the week. Pre-cooked, chosen for you, with scientific portion control, and if you don't like it, starve. All vegetarian, with additives approved by the Ministry of GroupThink to keep you docile and happy. They'll pick the sugar, salt, and fat levels, since you're too stupid to manage.

Indeed a worry. Let's hope in the future if this takes off, they don't start behaving like Daleks. That would definately get messy.

It's not only handy for cooking, but can it change diapers?
