Check this out! At a recent International Next-Generation Robot Fair in Osaka, Japan, Yaskawa Electric demonstrated a robot called the Motoman SDA10 that can cook okonomiyaki, among other things. You remember okonomiyaki - that savory Japanese pizza-pancake that we wrote about a few months ago.
The Motoman uses speech recognition technology to take verbal orders. Using standard kitchen utensils, the robot mixed the okonomiyaki batter, poured it on the grill, flips it, transfers it to a plate, and pours condiments on it before serving. Ingenious! In the future, do you want robots in your kitchen? What do you hope the future of technology brings to your kitchen? (Images: Pink Tentacle)
