After a long day at the office, you can’t always find the motivation to cook for yourself. Thankfully, London-based company Moley Robitics has come up with an alternative to takeout and ready meals that’s just as easy, and so much healthier. The ‘robo chef’ – sadly still a prototype – captures the human movement involved in preparing a meal, then recreates it with its sophisticated set of robot hands. (The humanoid appendages use 20 motors, 24 joints and 129 sensors for ease and accuracy of movement when stirring, trussing, drizzling and garnishing.) The product is at least a year away from launch – the company hopes to make it more compact, while adding a built-in refrigerator and dishwasher – but it is a glimpse into the future. A future in which you happen to have a spare $20,000, that is.
