Man invents a "smart robot cooker", because of wife's nagging.

In Star Trek you tell the Replicator what you want to eat and the meal magically appears. To get a freshly cooked meal from the Chinese smart robot cooker, you still have to press a button on a touchscreen. The result is similar. There are though many more choices available from the Replicator including Romulan Ale.

At the 6th China International Technology Fair (CSITF) in Shanghai, He Qing, CEO of a Shanghai-based catering service company showed off is robotic cooker eight years in the making.

He created the smart robot cooker after becoming tired of his wife's nagging about his inability to cook, reports Chinese CGTN.

It's unclear how the smart robot cooker is functioning in detail. The meals the robot dishes out are supposed to be delicious. The cooking machine can be rented with a $1,600 deposit. Each meal is just $0.16c.

We assume this is in addition to the ingredients that need be supplied somehow into the smart robotic cooker. Another limitation is that the ingredients have to be cut and cleaned before the robot can make you a stir-fry. Given that cutting is the most time-consuming task when cooking Chinese, the robot is not a big help if you know how to cook.
