The world’s first robotic chef can cook in a jiffy. And the first dish it prepared is crab bisque.

The world’s first robotic chef consists of two technologically manipulated hands of steel that can make a dish in a matter of a few minutes. Moley Robotics made this skillful spinner of gastronomical glories.

Now the chefs and housewives of the world can stop cooking and allow this piece of high tech machinery to do their job for them. It was introduced for the first time in a fair in Germany.

Comprising of a pair of steel arms that hung over a kitchen table with all the necessary implements for making a wonderful and delicious dish, the robotic chef is indeed something to marvel at.

It lies behind a glass screen for the safety of the onlookers. Moley Robotics worked in tandem with Shadow Robotics, a London-based company that has also worked for NASA in the past.

The delicate manner in which the two arms function is such that they can literally crack an egg without the yolk breaking or the white spilling. As for the programming, it is done via close mimicry of an actual chef instead of by feeding it mechanical instructions. A camera is used to reproduce the three dimensional actuality of the situation needed to co-create the dish. 

As the robotic chef made crab bisque, it prepared many things including the handling of a piece of bread that got heated to form toast. The moves made were pretty cool. The hands used a pat of butter which was melted in a frying pan to which were added shallots and spices.

Then after a 20 minute gap, the bisque was ready to be taste-tested. The deft hands and arms were capable of holding the dish up for your examination. The tarragon and chili oil was added at the end of the procedure.

The subtle taste of crab in the soup-like mixture that is the bisque is so scrumptious that it makes one want to leap out and hug those robotic arms. Currently there is only one dish that the robotic chef can prepare and that is crab bisque.

Later on many new culinary delights will be added to its repertoire. An archive of 2000 dishes lies waiting to be fed into its memory bank. It will cost around 10,000 pounds and won’t come in the market until two more years. Till then there is always the human element to rely on though.
