As I’ve mentioned before in several posts, I’m not a conspiracy theorist. But the recent upsurge of robotic creations has to be for a reason, right? Well, I came across another company that has created a very interesting robot, and I had to share it with you all.
Moley Robotics has created the world’s first fully-automated kitchen that features an oven, hob, touchscreen unit, and two dexterous robotic arms that allows it to cook with the skill and flair of a master chef. The kitchen can be operated by its touchscreen unit or a smartphone, and when it’s not in use the robotic arms are retracted from view. The prototype happens to be the product of 12 months of development in collaboration with Shadow Robotics, Yachtline, DYSEGNO, Sebastian Conran, and Stanford University Professor Mark Cutkosky. And the movements from the robot’s hands are replayed from the cooking skills of Master Chef Tim Anderson.
The Moley Robotic Kitchen also has an iTunes-style library with a collection of recipes from around the world. The robotic hands have multiple joints, numerous degrees of freedom, tactile sensors, and sophisticated control systems; which allows MK1 to download a recipe and reproduce it exactly like the master chef. And Moley Robotics has captured the imagination of many industries, being approached by major players in the restaurant industry, airlines, kitchen developers, and chef training schools.
Until Next Time…
