Re: I dare not reading it alone

A real arguement to the limitations of robots, you'd have to give them a sense of taste and touch to cook properly. Then teach them all the variables involved in the ingredients, weather, humidity, cooking equipment etc.

I would just prefer to put a pot on the stove myself
But wouldn't it be cool if it could happen.

There might be a lot of overcooked and burned foods I feel  because every pot or things or  piece of things you cook is slightly different in how it reacts to the heat.., not sure how the robots would manage this .

And they would be pretty boring to chat with as well ... It's nice to have a chat whilst your cooking !

Well there is already a breadmaking device out there. Yeah robots can't yet cook, in the more general way, but they can help quite a bit. For example I wish I had a mixer, by lower back always aches after making brioche dough...... smile

*About the taste, there is already an electric tongue that measure many chemicals. I have read some scientific papers on it in winemaking, beermaking, but I didn't give it too much attention...
