Visitors to the International Next-Generation Robot Fair in Osaka who get a bit peckish can head over to the stand where the Motoman SDA10 robot has demonstrated its culinary abilities.
This two-armed robot can do a range of things, and cooking okonomiyaki is just one thing on its impressive resumé. It’s even more impressive because it can take orders from customers using speech recognition technology and then create the dish using standard kitchen utensils. It even flips the pancake-like dish.
The robot is 4.5ft tall, weights 220kg, and has 15 joints (seven in each arm and one in the torso) which allow for a great range of movement.
The following video shows it putting together components in a disposable camera.
