In this case, a Motoman SDA10 dual-arm industrial robot demonstrated its culinary skills by preparing a Japanese dish called okonomiyaki - something between a pancake and a pizza - and was apparently even able to take spoken orders through the use of speech recognition technology. The 220-kg robot, which is designed to occupy only as much room as a human while offering human-like flexibility, has 15 joints and a payload capability of 10 kg.
While there's no video currently available showing the SDA10's cooking skills in action (you can see still shots here), the following short video (1:19) demonstrates the robot's dexterity as it assembles a disposable camera:
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
