AIC-CI Cookingrobot Chinese Robotic Chef

AIC-AI Cookingrobot, developed by Fanxing Science and Technology Co. Ltd in Shenzhen, China, is able to cook delicious Chinese cuisine. Sichuan, Shandong and Canton cuisines are all programmed and ready to eat.


(AI-AIC Cookingrobot from China)

AI-AIC Cooking robot is ready to take on tasks like Chinese steaming, baking, frying, boiling and sautéing. Chinese fast foods like Mongolian beef BBQ, Chow Mein, fried rice, fried wonton, Spring Rolls, and so on are produced as fast as humanly possible by the robot. At a cooking show held by the company this weekend, the robot cooked a dish of beautifully-flavored, attractive-looking shrimp in five minutes.

It is reported that the robot could go on sale as early as 2007; it could revolutionize preparation of standard Chinese fare in restaurants with no trained chefs.

I find myself quoting once again the the automated restaurants foretold by Edgar Rice Burroughs. In his 1912 story A Princess of Mars he writes:

Kantos Kan led me to one of these gorgeous eating places where we were served entirely by mechanical apparatus. No hand touched the food from the time it entered the building in its raw state until it emerged hot and delicious upon the tables before the guests, in response to the touching of tiny buttons to indicate their desires.

Looks like the cooking robotics necessary for the automated restaurant are heating up. Waitresses have also been partially automated - see Bytes Restaurant With Touchscreen Ordering.

Update 12-Jul-2008: Anthony Boucher contributed to the idea of a robot chef in his 1943 story Robinc:

"Half your time in cooking is wasted raching around for what you need next. We can build in a lot of that stuff. For instance, one tentacle can be a registering thermometer. tapering to a find point - stick it in a roast and - One can end in a broad spoon for stirring - heat resistant, of course. One might terminate in a sort of hand, of which each of the digits was a different-sized measuring spoon..
