In futuristic kitchens, you won’t have to prepare your own meals as a robotic chef will do that for you. Keeping the same concept in mind, MIT engineering students Kale Rogers, Michael Farid, Braden Knight, and Luke Schlueter have created the Spyce robotic kitchen. It is not just a robotic chef, but a revolutionary mini restaurant that works automatically from preparing different recipes to cleaning dishes.
Covering 20-square-feet, the robotic kitchen has its own refrigerator, stovetop, dishwasher, and a personal robot chef. It is designed to prepare ‘fast foods’ faster than ever before. It can select different ingredients, cook, as well as serve meals within just five minutes. Currently Spyce Kitchen is being tested at one of MIT’s dining halls, and according to the reports it can serve five different meals at once.
The robotic kitchen comes with a companion smartphone app to customize food as per your taste. You can select desired ingredients for a specific food recipe via smartphone or the machine’s touchscreen menu. Once your preferences are taken down by the robot, it will immediately start looking for ingredients in the refrigerator, measure them and deliver to the respective cooking pans.
You need to wait for few minutes for food preparation, and after that food will be served automatically on in your plate. After serving different fast food dishes, the robot will then move used pots and plates to the washing area for thorough cleanup. So, no work will be left for you in the kitchen. It is truly a dream kitchen for all time-poor individuals, who have to work for hours in office and don’t have enough time to cook for themselves.
For the revolutionary design of Spyce Kitchen, the team of MIT students has already won $10, 000 at Lemelson-MIT Student Prize 2016. Even several schools in Boston have already expressed interest in this robotic kitchen. Hopefully, in coming years we’ll be watching this robotic restaurant at some nearby eateries or in our smart homes.
