The latest robotic chef comes from Switzerland courtesy of Sylvain Calinon. The basic premise is that the robot, a HOAP-3 robot, learns things by being shown them first.
Here the robot is shown how to and makes a ham and cheese omelette.
Check out the funny video here, complete with the Benny Hill theme song and circus music. Also, check out other videos of the robot learning such things as basketball referee signals and learning to play chess here.
