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.

The World’s First Sex Robot Has Been Unveiled, And It Doesn’t Look Like Ann Curry…

…NOR was it invented by the Japanese!!!

She can't move her head, but sure does give great...

Roxxxy, the first functional sex robot with artificial intelligence, was unveiled by New Jersey-based creator TrueCompanion at the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas over the weekend.

From Fox News:

“She can’t vacuum, she can’t cook but she can do almost anything else if you know what I mean,” Douglas Hines, the president of ROXXXY manufacturer TrueCompanion, told the AFP. “She’s a companion. She has a personality. She hears you. She listens to you. She speaks. She feels your touch. She goes to sleep. We are trying to replicate a personality of a person.”

Not to hate on a breakthrough, but we’re a little dissatisfied. Sure, a sex robot sounds great. But we couldn’t care less if our robot sleeps, feels our touch, or talks about her day. We want her to call us a stallion, screw us on demand, and occasionally cook us a lasagna. Is that too much to ask?
