According to foreign media reports, as early as 2015, robot home cooks and kitchen equipment became a hot topic, especially Moley robotics. The British start-up has gone beyond robotic blenders and food tracking refrigerators to develop a prototype robotic kitchen, which aims to take over all cooking in the kitchen so that homeowners can pick up a glass of wine and watch how it works.After six years of rapid development, the company is ready to start installing its automated kitchen system in real homes.
It is reported that Moley has fine tuned the system used in the house, hoping to simplify the way the owner prepares food and cooks every day.
In order to provide these manipulators with the necessary cooking experience to skillfully produce restaurant level food, Moley worked directly with the chef to write recipes. In addition to inputting ingredients, measurement methods and step-by-step instructions into computers, chefs also actively prepare recipes and make real-time 3D records. The system can capture the subtle difference of chef's action, and transform human motion into digital motion by user-defined algorithm. Moley plans to compile more than 5000 recipes.
Homeowners can control the kitchen through a large touch screen.
Moley kitchen and its customized cooking tools are designed to seamlessly take over human beings, so even if homeowners are in the mood to cook something, they don't have to give up all the cooking autonomy. Home cooks can also record their own recipes using Moley's creator software, so that the robotic system can add them to their recipes.
In addition to the mechanical arm, Moley kitchen also provides a comprehensive installation including electrical appliances, cabinets and tools. It will be customized for each buyer and comes with a choice of luxury materials such as marble or agate countertops. Cookers and utensils are made of brass, polished aluminum and gold-plated stainless steel, and buyers can choose to use a variety of decorations and finishes to match their larger home interiors.
Of course, the price will vary depending on the layout and options chosen, but Moley estimates that the installation of the high-end Moley R package will cost about 248000 pounds. The Moley x package, which removes the mechanical arm for a simpler technology assisted cooking experience, costs about 99000.
In addition, Moley plans to add a commercial grade robotic kitchen in 2021, and the company says that since its prototype debut in 2015, restaurants, hotels and catering businesses have shown a particularly strong interest. It is understood that this commercial version will be further optimized, which will not only keep up with the fast pace of restaurant kitchens, but also reliably produce multiple parts of accurately cooked meals.
