Cooking and Serving Food is going to be fully automated in future.
Robot Chef is available for cooking. A robot chef, Motoman SDA10 of Yaskawa Electric Corporation successfully demonstrated cooking of Okonomiyaki, a Japanese savoury pancake in 2008. The manufacturer planned for selling 3,000 units of this industrial robot from 2010 onwards.
