How skillful has a robot become? No, not as sophisticated as the one appear in the ‘iRobot’ movie yet, but back in 2009, the Japan Robot Chef already has the capability to perform basic Japanese restaurant’s tasks, including picking up and arranging sushi rolls, cutting cucumber, flipping the food in the frying pan, and delivering drinks.
No update about the latest robot chef yet, but the sushi-roll hand picker robot seems very talented with the picking up task, which could move control the small movement for the imitated thumb, index and middle fingers.
The bad news is that, folks working for Japanese restaurant will likely have to compete with those ‘no-work-limit’ robots, tiresome for human? That will be the real challenge for 22nd century, especially in Japan.
