Robots can be masterful pieces of art when enough funding, research, knowledge and artistry goes into their designs, but I think it’s important to remember that not all robots are created equal. ChefBot, an entry in SparkFun’s Antimov Competition is not a well-made robot. In fact, he’s down right hazardous. But what he lacks in precision and safety, he gains in entertainment value. Or we gain, I should say.
In this video ChefBot attempts to make a Creme Brulee. This could be shown to new culinary students as a PSA for what not to do. After watching this video a few more times, I’m convinced that this robot was suicidal. At least it didn’t break any of Asimov’s laws.[via]
