On Thursday, London-based Moley Robotics showed off its robot chef to Mashable. The company is currently seeking to raise £1 million on Seedrs for the chefs and has so far secured nearly £830,000 from more than 150 investors.
As previously reported, Moley Robotics has created what it claims to be the world’s “first fully-automated and integrated intelligent” cooking robot. Each robot is designed to learn recipes, prepare and cook, and even clean up after themselves. The robot also offers a library of recipes from around the world. The robots can create dishes for their owners or even teach them how to make the meals.
Cooking with the robotic chefs is super simple. Owners select their menus remotely and then let the robots take over. Owners then come home with a meal that’s exactly what they wanted, when they wanted it, cooked to perfection. The Moley Robotics team shared:
“We believe in a simple, revolutionary idea: that our internet-connected Moley kitchen, robotic arms and all, can create dishes as good as those made by the world’s most talented chefs. We’ve already built a proof of concept prototype. Our invention employs motion-capture technology to trace the movements of the world’s top chefs as they prepare their best dishes. Our device’s space-age, robotic hands can then recreate those masterpieces — right in your kitchen. We believe that one day, you’ll be able to install our cutting-edge technology in your home at a cost that’s comparable to a traditional kitchen renovation.”
Moley Robotics’ campaign is set to close at the beginning of December. Check out the robotic chef in action below.
