These Robot Chefs Will Shave Your Noodles

The odd thing about Chef Cui Runquan’s latest invention isn’t that it’s a noodle-shaving robot (it’s not a robot, really, more a windshield-wiper-cutter-thing).

No, it’s that his new robot chef army looks ready to annihilate humanity, one shaven noodle at a time.

Luckily, like I said, these things aren’t really robots; they’re more like anthropomorphic assembly-line machines.

Cui Runguan designed and, subsequently, mass-produced them to replace human workers in the kitchen, where they can perform the noodle-shaving jobs we humans just don’t want to do. They’re also more efficient, and since they come with a one-time fee of about $2,000 USD, they’re a whole lot cheaper than hiring an actual person.

Now I’m just waiting for someone to build a humanoid shell for that robot that debones chickens. That’ll be pleasant.
