Okonomiyaki is the name of a popular Japanese dish made of a fried batter cake and various ingredients such as vegetables, shrimps, kimchi, cheese etc. Yaskawa Electric, a Tokyo-based electronics company, produced an industrial robot that can cook Okonomiyaki.
The company, which is also nominated for Japan’ Robot Award 2008 with its LCD glass substrate processing robot MOTOMAN-CDL 3000D, named the 220kg-robot Motoman SDA10. It stands 135cm tall and features 7 joints in each arm and one in the torso.
The robot also features speech recognition technology to be able to understand orders from customers. It was showcased last week during the International Next – Generation Robot Fair in Osaka.
