Handmade Chinese noodles can require a lot of time and labor to produce. But Chinese restauranteur, Cui Runguan, figured out a way to cut labor costs by building an army of noodle-making robots. It might seem creepy imagining a robot preparing your wonton noodle soup, but apparently these robots are just as good as human cooks. And according to one chef, ”The robot chef can slice noodles better than human chefs.”
The robots, called the Chef Cui, cost about $2,000 each. This is a cheaper alternative, given that hiring a chef costs about $4,700 a year. Not a bad idea, but if we’re going to have robots take over the world anytime soon, I’d suggest making them look less intimidating!
