This Robot Woks

April 14th, 2010 | 6 comments | Posted by Jen

Finally, a robot’s been invented that isn’t just an expensive (read: sad), cutting-edge (read: sad), and sad (read: pathetic) excuse for a blow-up doll.

Students at Yangzhou University and Shanghai Jiaotong University in China have come up with a fully-automated robot that can cook “600 classic Chinese dishes,” according to Popular Science. (Only from a civilization that’s been around for a gajillion years like China could you have 600 “classic” dishes.) All you have to do is pour in the ingredients and let it go to wok.

Here’s a demo from the 2009 version (begins at :30):

This is so much better than a sex robot. Actually, this may even be better than sex.

One very telling sign that you will not be missed after leaving office:

Shoe, Dubya! Get out of here!

People hurling their old, smelly, worn-soled footwear at your blow-up figure in Dupont Circle are wholly and vocally convinced that they’ll miss their stank boots a lot more.

Thanks, Erika!
