Japan’s robot ramen chefs


Japan’s robot obsession strikes again as robots invade the kitchen. An industrial robot maker in Nagoya, Japan opens a ramen shop where 2 robot hands prepare the Japanese all time favorite noodles.

“Fua-men” (pronounced FOO-ah-men) ramen noodle shop owns the robot chefs where they can serve nearly 80 bowls of ramen a day.

“The benefits of using robots as ramen chefs include the accuracy of timing in boiling noodles, precise movements in adding toppings and consistency in the taste and temperature of the soup,” said Kenji Nagaya, ramen shop owner and president of local robot manufacturer Aisei.
