Restaurant in China Has an All-Robot Kitchen Staff

Bartenders, waiters, and noodle-makers have all already been replaced by robots in China, so one restaurant is taking it a step further with a fleet of robot chefs: The BBC reports a traditional Chinese restaurant in the Heilongjiang Province stocks its kitchen with robot chefs who are (slowly) "stir-frying up a storm."

According to the restaurant manager, employees simply stock the pantry and shelves with ingredients and "press one button, then the robot can handle it all." It appears there's a human runner on staff, but robots also serve as waiters. As one customer tells the BBC: "The dishes taste just as those made by human chefs. If no one tells me, I think people won't see the difference." Go, watch the robots in action:
