Robots are taking over the world, and now they can make you the perfect sushi roll. While chefs and others in the restaurant industry may think they are safe from automation, new Kawasaki robots are capable of being customized to make whatever food you need. Don’t believe me? Check out the video of the robots doing their job below.
Kawasaki is one of the world’s biggest manufacturer of automation robots, and they recently opened up a display floor with all of their various machines. This sushi robot is one of the machines that is on display. The company adapted their robotic arm base robots to be able to connect to different sushi utensils and ingredients. Robotic arms of all varieties can be easily adapted to create food, all it takes is a little custom design.

One thing that is still evident in this video is that the robots obviously still requires a lot of design and assembly. Chefs will still have to help program the robots to ultimately create delicious food. For now, chefs are safe from automation. However, at the current level these robots could replace fry cooks and the basic minimum wage labor in restaurants.
