Noodle-slicing kitchen robots
|(Nanowerk News) In the face of rising labor costs, Chinese restaurateur Cui Runguan is selling thousands of robots that can hand slice noodles into a pot of boiling water called the Chef Cui. Runguan says that just like robots replacing workers in factories, "it is certainly going to happen in sliced noodle restaurants."|
|The robots costs $2,000 each, as compared to a chef, who would cost $4,700 a year. According to one chef, "The robot chef can slice noodles better than human chefs."|
|News of Runguan's invention hit the internet in March of 2011, but they've since gone into production and are starting to catch on: 3,000 of them have already been sold. But why do their eyes glow, and why do they look so angry? Here's video of this nascent robot army.|
