If money was no object, and you’ve always wanted a private chef, then Moley Robotics has just the robot for you. At $329K USD, this system basically consists of dexterous robot integrated into a luxury kitchen capable of preparing freshly-cooked meals at the touch of a button using two robotic arms that can realistically mimic the movements of human hands. That’s right, it can retrieve ingredients from a smart fridge, fill pans, pour liquids, mix ingredients, and even plate everything up.
Now most people hate cleaning the mess more than actually preparing or cooking the meal, and that’s where this robotic kitchen shines. Its multiple sensors and optical cameras also help it clean in addition to performing its cooking tasks. Plus, it comes equipped with an optical system that detects dropped food and sweeps it up before or after cooking. Currently, it can make 30 dishes concocted by world famous chefs, with the ultimate goal of having 5000 different recipes in the database.

- Kids build Charlie, Tricky, Blast, M.V.P. and Gelo, and take on activities and missions using the Scratch-based LEGO MINDSTORMS Robot Inventor App (visit LEGO.com/devicecheck for a list of compatible devices)
- With almost 1,000 pieces, including an intelligent Hub, 4 Medium Motors, Color Sensor and Distance Sensor with break-out interface, youngsters can also build their own fun robotic toys and share them online on LEGO Life
- An easy-to-install rechargeable battery is included, so no need to go hunting for spare batteries when the fun’s about to start
- Blast stands at over 14” (36cm) tall, while Gelo measures over 9” (24cm) long; The Powered Up components in this set are also compatible with the LEGO BOOST Creative Toolbox (17101), Droid Commander (75253) and others
What you are looking at here is the world’s first consumer robotic kitchen. Like all breakthrough technologies – cars, televisions and computers – it will appeal to enthusiasts, professionals and early adopters, and is priced accordingly. We anticipate that our pricing will be reduced significantly over time with production volume, efficiencies and economies of scale,” said Moley Robotics computer scientist Mark Oleynik.
