according to the owner of the store and industrial robot maker kenji nagoya the benefits of using the robots as chefs include; ‘the accuracy of timing in boiling noodles, precise movements in adding toppings and consistency in the taste.’

not only do they prepare customers meals, but they also perform tricks.

  • Seriously, the “accuracy of timing” in making ramen noodle soup was so critical that people needed to be replaced with robots?

  • Come on! that’s obviously not the point… people certainly don’t go there too see if the ramen is just in time… the go there to see… the robots in action!

  • I’d appreciate one of these in suburban america where our only options for a quick meal is corporate fast-food chains. I’m sure the manpower lost cooking noodles doesn’t compare to the manpower lost in these chains where all the prep is done in warehouses, by machine, and frozen and delivered.
