Pasta robot P-Robo to start cooking 90 meals per hour
The world’s first-ever pasta cooking robot P-Robo makes its debut when E Vino Spaghetti restaurant in Tokyo's Marunouchi business district welcomes diners that have very little time for a lunch break.
P-Robo cooks up to 90 meals per hour.
P-Robo underwent four years of development in collaboration with TechMagic Inc., which creates new food infrastructure by utilizing cutting-edge technologies such as artificial intelligence machine learning and robotics.
The Pronto Corporation, known for its pasta chain Pronto, as well as other nearby restaurants including Di Punto and Illy Caffe, runs E Vino Spaghetti.
P stands for Pronto and it is their fourth generation machine.
Pronto and TechMagic are attempting to address challenges with human resource development in the food service business, which is experiencing an unprecedented labor crisis. Both companies foresee sustainable food infrastructure.
Using high-powered induction and a specially designed deep frying pan, P-Robo automates both complex and easy activities during cooking.
P-Robo prepares everything else, even washing the pans, except the finishing touches like adding toppings in food preparation, which are done by human hands only.
Other than pasta, many menu items are prepared by hand, like chicken and avocado salad, which is likely to be a favorite among health-conscious diners.
Techmagic president and CEO Yuji Shiraki intends to bring P-Robo to different countries, too.
