The robotics industry is always diversifying. Robots are no longer exclusively designed for industrial applications or warehouses. A startup called DaVinci Kitchen believes that they should be making spaghetti.
The Leipzig, Germany-based firm is working to launch a modular robotic kiosk that autonomously prepares Italian-themed pasta dishes. Amid the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, robots have had a chance to shine. Although robotic chefs are futuristic, they could be a useful innovation in today’s challenging times.
It’s no secret that everyone needs to eat. With that in mind, there will always be demand for food service. Even in the lockdown phase of the COVID-19 pandemic restaurants were open for takeout and delivery. With robots working in the kitchen, restaurants could realistically stay open around the clock regardless of what’s going on in the world.
DaVinci’s first robot is designed to cook perfect pasta dishes. The allure here is that pasta is relatively simple to make but appeals to a wide audience.
In about six minutes, the robot creates, cooks, and serves the entire dish. It can also prepare two meals simultaneously. Best yet, the robot even cleans the dishes.
