electric outlets and WiFi bandwidth, but they’ll also cook your breakfast. Isn’t it amazing? However, it’s going to be a reality in near future.
The artificial intelligence machine just released a cookbook, but Moley
Robotics wants to put an entire robotic chef in your kitchen. Debuting at
international robotics show Hanover Messe, the prototype is a sneak peek at
what the company hopes to release to consumers in 2017.
the Shadow Robot Company, which actually created the hands. At the show, the
robot is whipping up crab bisque, which it “learned” to make by mimicking BBC
MasterChef winner Tim Anderson; a 3D camera filmed him making the recipe, and
the robot’s commands were based on the chef’s movements.
each dish precisely the same way every time. For homeowners, it’s the
convenience, says Anderson. “What I would want is it to make me a good meal, a
fresh meal, made from good, fresh ingredients when I can’t be bothered to do
it,” he tells The BBC.
dexterous enough to stir a pot, pour in ingredients, and transfer dirty dishes
to the sink. However, they can’t do everything: Sushi might be beyond its
capabilities at the moment. “Maybe with sushi rolls it might be fine, but with
nigiri sushi it would be very, very difficult, as it would need to use certain
pressure and certain quick movements” to be as good as a human, chef Wojciech
Psykala of Kouzu restaurant told IBTimes UK. Still, the hands, which are driven
by motors and sensors, were created to be as close a human’s as possible, and
with the exception of a few movements in the thumb, “all the other joint
movements are actually there,” Rich Walker of Shadow Robot tells the BBC.
even more abilities than it does now. The robot will come with a built-in
fridge and dishwasher and have over 2,000 cooking options in its recipe
library. If you want to tackle a recipe yourself, you’ll be able to fold up the
hands and place them in a cupboard. The expected price is about $14,800
(£10,000), which, surprisingly, is more than we typically spend per year on
takeout. (Source: digitaltrends)
