Ramen Serving Robots

Just one more reason to move to Japan, a restaurant that serves ramen made by robots. Watch to the end, the robots do some funny stuff when they aren't making food.

There are just way too many ways for something to go horribly, horribly wrong. It's only funny until someone gets horrifically maimed by robotic arms...then it's hilarious. The sword kata practice was priceless.

That's fascinating to watch, but I've got to wonder, with the amount of human intervention required, can it still be cost effective?

At first I was sort of offended by the inefficiency of having the arms actually pick up and use ladles, instead of being equipped with squirt nozzles, but then I realized that was very much part of the marketing. And if the 'bots can use tools, why not?
