MIT Engineers Replace Chefs With Machines

Published : 6/5/2018

Four engineers from MIT have opened a fast-food restaurant in Boston that uses mechanical woks to autonomously prepare meals in under three minutes.

Billed as the "world's first" robotic kitchen, the Spyce restaurant employs a series of seven automated cooking woks in place of human chefs. These robots are designed to simultaneously prepare food in three minutes or less.

Customers place their orders using a touch-screen device inside the restaurant. Then an ingredient delivery system, or "runner," collects the ingredients and portions them, before delivering them into one of the robotic woks.

The pre-portioned ingredients are then mixed in the cylindrical, rotating drums and cooked at 450 degrees fahrenheit using induction technology.

The woks are set at an angle that allows the customers to watch their food being prepared in front of them.
