Momozono Robot Ramen Features Robotic Chef
Momozono Robot Ramen is a ramen shop that opened last November in Japan and has the distinction of its own robot chef. Customers place orders on a computer and can specify flavoring such as amount of soy sauce and salt, or richness of the stock. A human cooks the noodles while the chef-bot makes the blended soup. A conveyor belt takes it back to the real chef and he adds the noodles and topping. Although there are over 40 million permutations available and the process only takes about 2 minutes, owner Yoshihira Uchida spent about ¥20 million building it. Considering that the robot is limited in its chores, we hope he will also teach it to clean up afterward.
