  • Earlier this month, the fast food chain White Castle announced it would begin using an autonomous fry cook robot, called Flippy, to reduce human contact in its restaurants.
  • The move is meant to reduce human contact with food amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Flippy will start flipping patties at a White Castle in Chicago sometime this fall.

Robots and self-driving cars have been the secret heroes of the coronavirus outbreak, and now they could soon be cooking our food, too.

In mid-July, White Castle—the oldest hamburger restaurant in the U.S.—announced that it’s partnering with Miso Robotics, a Pasadena, California-based industrial automation company, to create a robot that will serve up hamburgers. Named Flippy, this robot will begin preparing patties and dunking fries into hot vats of oil sometime this fall.

Despite this being Flippy’s first official fast food rodeo, the autonomous robot already has

Cookies inspired by Japanese cuisine

Masako, an Osaka-based mother and baker extraordinaire, creates cookies inspired by Japanese cuisine. While the tiny treats may look like mini meals, they’re actually simple sugar cookies topped with intricately sculpted icing – a delicious and inventive craft she showcases on Instagram.

An avid baker, Masako has documented her collection of cookies for about a year now. While always impressive, her dessert designs have come a long way—though she’s always had a penchant for recreating familiar foods. In the past, she often paid homage to classic snacks like bacon, hot dogs, and cupcakes, as well as a delicious assortment of strikingly realistic cakes. She’s also reimagined bouquets of flowers, festive holiday trimmings, and even impressive icing drawings of beloved movie characters. Few of her creations, however, were as detailed as the Japanese food-inspired treats she beautifully bakes today.

Far from your average cookies, Masako’s latest creations transcend sprinkles, frosting,

Startup automates Chinese restaurants with cooking robots

BEIJING — Yushanfang Cooking Robot Tech, which makes restaurant kitchens smart, has raised several tens of million of yuan (several million dollars) from China Prosperity Capital and Seekdource Investment Management in an angel round of funding.

The company aims to use the funds for product and human-resources development and marketing.

Cooking robots developed by Yushanfang, founded in 2018, are now in the 10th generation. The robots, which prepare one dish at a time upon order, are used by fast-food restaurants.

Cooks’ skills are a key factor in the taste of Chinese food, besides the quality of ingredients. In conventional restaurants, the kitchen and pantry often occupy as much as one-third of the area. And the quality of food varies at small to medium-size restaurants, which in addition can generate only limited sales per unit of area. Yushanfang’s cooking robots, which use artificial intelligence, address such issues.
