    Robot chef, stirs, pours, and changes cooking temperature

    Published on Apr 13, 2015

    This dexterous robotic chef is able to mimic human cooking techniques to stir, pour, mix and more.

    The robot has taken two years to develop and the creators, the Shadow Robot Company, hope to be able to launch a commercial version by 2017.

    World’s first robotic kitchen unveiled

    Published on Apr 14, 2015

    • Heralding New Mass Market for Domestic Robotics
    • iTunes for food opens up new world of cuisine

    The world’s first Automated Kitchen was unveiled today at Hanover Messe, the premier industrial robotics show. Created by Moley Robotics, the system features a dexterous robot integrated into a kitchen that cooks with the skill and flair of a master chef.

    The company’s goal is to produce a consumer version within two years, supported by an iTunes’ style library of recipes that can be downloaded and created by the kitchen.

    The prototype in action at the show (Hall 17 Stand E84) is the product of two years development and the collaboration of an international team including Sebastian Conran who designed the cooking utensils and Mauro Izzo, DYSEGNO and the Yachtline company, who created the futuristic Kitchen furniture.

    Two highly complex, fully articulated hands, made by the Shadow Robot Company, comprise the kitchen’s key enabling technology. The product of over eighteen years research and development, Shadow’s products are used in the nuclear industry and by NASA. Able to faithfully reproduce the movements of a human hand, their utility underpins the unique capability of the Automated Kitchen.

    The Moley Robotics system does not cook like a machine – it captures human skills in motion. Tim Anderson, culinary innovator and winner of the prestigious BBC Master Chef competition (2011) played an integral role in the kitchen’s development.

    He first developed a dish that would test the systems capabilities – a crab bisque – and was then 3-D recorded in a special studio cooking it. Every motion and nuance was captured, from the way Tim stirred the liquids to the way he controlled the temperature of the hob. His actions were then translated into elegant digital movement using bespoke algorithms created with the collaboration between Moley and teams from Shadow, Universities of Stamford (USA) and SSSUP Pisa (Italy). The robot doesn’t just cook like Tim – in terms of skill, technique and execution it is Tim producing the dish. The kitchen even ‘signs off’ its work with an ‘OK’ gesture – just as the chef does.

    “To be honest, I didn’t think this was possible. I chose crab bisque as a dish because it’s a real challenge for human chef to make well, never mind a machine. Having seen – and tasted – the results for myself, I am stunned. This is the beginning of something really significant: a whole new opportunity for producing good food and for people to explore the world’s cuisines. It’s very exciting.”

    Moley Robotics, which is head quartered in the UK, is now working to scale the technology ready for mass production and installation in regular sized kitchens. Future iterations will be more compact, with smaller control arms but with added functionality in the form of a built in refrigerator and dishwasher to complement a professional-grade hob and oven.

    The company is working with designers, homebuilders, kitchen installers and food suppliers to promote the system. The mass-market product will be supported by a digital library of over 2000 dishes when it launches in 2017 and it is envisaged that celebrity chefs will embrace 3-D cooking downloads as an appealing addition to cook book market. Home chefs will be able to upload their favourite recipes too, and so help create the ‘iTunes’ for food.

    Moley Robotics was founded by London-based computer scientist, robotics and healthcare innovator Mark Oleynik. The company’s aim is to produce technologies that address basic human needs and improve day-to-day quality of life.

    “Whether you love food and want to explore different cuisines, or fancy saving a favourite family recipe for everyone to enjoy for years to come, the Automated Kitchen can do this. It is not just a labour saving device – it is a platform for our creativity. It can even teach us how to become better cooks!”

    Demonstration of a robotic kitchen using two UR5 robot arms

    Published on Apr 17, 2015

    UK-based Moley Robotics unveiled an autonomous kitchen machine on Hannover Messe 2015 that uses two UR5 robot arms from Universal Robots and robot hands to reproduce the movements of a human chef from a 3D-recording of a cooking process that maps every individual motion. In the space of 25 minutes, the robotic gourmet prepared a bowl of crab bisque from a recipe developed by Tim Anderson, a previous winner of BBC’s Masterchef competition. Its UR5 robot arms, which are mounted above a kitchen surface including a hob and a sink, move up and down as it scrapes butter off a spatula. They even wipe the ladle on the side of the saucepan to prevent drips.
