With nearly two weeks until its equity crowdfunding campaign on Seedrs comes to an end, London-based Moley Robotics has raised nearly £920,000 from close to 200 investors. The company launched the initiative last month and is seeking to raise £1 million for its new chef robots.
The company previously stated it 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 what they believe is perfection.
Moley has notably received various recognitions and awards, including its Robotic Kitchen being named “Best of the Best” award at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Shanghai in May 2015. The Moley Robotics team explained:
“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.”
Funds for the campaign will be used to develop a complete industrial quality and functional workstation prototype for the European market, along with develope further cooking techniques and expand the recipe library to over 100 recipes. The campaign is set to close at the beginning of December.
