In the year 2018, you could very well have a robot making you dinner. Meet the Moley robotic kitchen, designed by Moley Robotics. This device consists of two robotic arms that can prepare entire meals for however many people you need. All you do is select a meal from a database of many, many options, provide the ingredients, select how many people you are serving, select when you would like the meal ready, and let it go to work. This technology even handles all the cleanup with its built-in dishwasher. The concept was inspired by the obesity epidemic, and the growing issue of people not getting healthy, home-cooked meals often enough.
