Robot learns how to stir fry and more
Spending a quarter of a million dollars in development costs, Chinese robotic scientists created the AIC-AI Cooking robot that can fry, bake, boil as well as steam. The robot's repertoire covers Sichuan, Shandong and Cantonese recipes. I'm withholding judgement until I find out if it can make decent Ma Pu Tu Fu.
They are readying it to be sold next year; however, pricing has not be determined.
