Everyone knows about Japan and their obsession with anything robotic, but China is no slouch either when it comes to metallic innovation
In Shanghai, Wishdoing is a popular fast-food restaurant located on Nanjing Road. Its owners have recently purchased two robots (at $30,350 each) that can cook Chinese popular specialties. These include: spicy diced chicken with peanuts, Kung Pao chicken and Mapo Tofu (bean curd with chili sauce). All one needs to do is press the button on the robots to choose a dish and they will display the name of the ingredients and their quantities. The robots only take three minutes to wash the pots from a previous order, mix the ingredients, finish the cooking and then place the food onto a plate for serving.
The Dalu Robot Restaurant, in Jinan, northern China’s Shandong Province, has a very special wait staff indeed. All of the waitresses (six in total) are robots that follow a fixed route that can serve up to 100 diners.
