It seems to be much ado about nothing. If I remember correctly, there have been noodle making machines for quite awhile. There is nothing new here except the packaging of the machine. It may look like a robot but it seems to be more a machine dressed up to look like a robot. Perhaps I am missing some details regarding this robot?

The idea of having a robot instead of a machine , in my opinion is to give the human touch to the whole process. Basically the robot is replacing a chef who would otherwise show his presence to the clientele.

Why not just make a noodle making machine? Why do you need something that looks humanoid? You could probably make a tabletop machine that is smaller, cheaper and more efficient. For a humanoid robot to be practical it needs to be multipurpose. It needs to cook the whole meal, serve it and do the dishes.

The cost savings apart the robot will not require toilet break, would not stop for a smoke and would not waste time on mobile talking to his girlfriend so the actual productivity is doubled and the cost is reduced to half. So it it 400% profit for the restaurant owner. Who will not want it?

"When placed above a pot of boiling water the robot can slice noodles using a windshield wiper like motion." I suspect most human chefs would slice as many noodles as you wanted if you did this to them.... :-)
