Your cooking partner is a robot, your fridge can talk, and your plate is your own personal dietician. Oh, and for a laugh you occasionally have a cook-off with a famous holographic chef.
This may sound like a scene from 1960s sci-fi cartoon The Jetsons, but the kitchens in coming decades may not be so far off those envisioned by futurologists.
Today, a number of significant developments in culinary tech are happening in the field of robotics. CNN’s Blueprint team caught up with a group of design students in Poland who recently programmed an industrial robot — usually tasked with building cars — to cook.
"Our project is called ‘Let’s cook the future’ and we try to cook with robots — we had a robot that initially was made just to be in factories and make cars and we tried to treat it as a human and put it in the kitchen." Says Barbara Dzaman, one of the students involved in the project.
