AIC-AI Cookingrobot, developed by Fanxing Science and
Technology Co. Ltd in Shenzhen, China, is able to cook
delicious Chinese cuisine.
Sichuan, Shandong and Canton cuisines are all programmed
and ready to eat.

AI-AIC Cooking robot is ready to take on tasks like Chinese
steaming, baking, frying, boiling and sautéing.
Chinese fast foods like Mongolian beef BBQ, Chow Mein, fried
rice, fried wonton, Spring Rolls, and so on are produced as fast
as humanly possible by the robot.
At a cooking show held by the company this weekend, the
robot cooked a dish of beautifully-flavored, attractive-looking
shrimp in five minutes.

It is reported that the robot could go on sale as early as 2007;
it could revolutionize preparation of standard Chinese fare in
restaurants with no trained chefs.

Very cool, I've always wanted a robot cook.

I wonder how long it will take before this becomes popular.
I'm gonna guess by 2025 1/4 of American households will
have Robot chefs.


Comments, Opinions?

Has anyone compared the taste of the food between the robot's dishes and a normal chef? Speed and preparation are one thing, but if the food isn't as good as a normal chef, I doubt many would eat at the resturaunt.

What's the cost of one of these robots?

Don't know, that's a good question though, from what the articles
says, it sounds like it's probably just as good though.

McDonalds food sucks, but people still eat it en mass.
I think the fact that robots make it would really get a good crowd
eating their, just because of its uniqueness.

Another good question, one I unfortunately don't know, they
probably won't announce the price until it comes out.

I'm betting somewhere around $5,000 though.

Well, McDonalds food is cheaper than what many find in a Chinese resturaunt, which is why it has such an appeal to so many people. No doubt, the consumers at the Chinese resturaunt will have to pay more to make up the money spent on the machine. If they can sell it for less than $1500, I can see resturaunts buying it, but given a choice between a minimum wage chef or a $5,000 machine, no doubt the resturaunt would keep the chef.
