Imagine, after a long day at work, coming home to any meal you wanted — without having to cook. Now, meet the robot set to make this a reality.
Welcome to the future
In 2018, UK-based robotics company Moley is set to release a robot that'll transform your kitchen forever.
The yet-to-be-named robot will use intricately articulated hands and a set of pre-defined recipes to cook up thousands of meal options. What’s more, it’ll even wash up after itself — which is more than can be said for most people!
All of this means that you’ll have the chance to enjoy the pleasure of a home-cooked, healthy meal, without any of the fuss. Now that’s a win-win.
Mimicking a Master Chef
The robot’s being taught to cook by Michelin-starred chef, Tim Anderson.
Tim trains the robot chef by wearing high-tech gear that lets the machine learn from his movements.
Using this technique, robo-chef’s already learned how to make a crab bisque — a notoriously complex dish to master. And soon the makers reckon the robot will be able to learn recipes from individual users — so you can eat your grandma’s shepherd’s pie as often as you like.
Do humans have to worry?
Technology in food is always exciting, but there's just one thing missing — great service. A robot can't react to individual preferences to make sure everyone enjoys their meal. And machines can't create the right atmosphere for an exceptional dining experience. For now, at least.
Dining shouldn't be a robotic experience; that's why great service matters.
