Colombian engineers are developing a chef robot that prepares food using lasers and 3D printing.
A team from Digital Food, led by a professor at Rolumbia University, is developing a fully autonomous personal chef.
She will independently create food and cook it: you just need to set the recipe and choose the time at which the dish should be ready. The authors have not yet completed their development, they are testing different types of food that will need to be boiled, fried and cut in a specific sequence.
The researchers studied different ways of cooking: they irradiated chicken with a laser and compared it to the typical way of cooking this meat. The chicken samples were printed by the authors and evaluated for a number of parameters, in particular, the depth of cooking, color change, moisture retention and the difference in taste between meat cooked with a laser or on a stove.
They found that laser-cooked meat tastes like what we usually cook at home. Now the authors are engaged in adapting their system for ordinary people, not programmers and developers. So that they can create the products they want.
The researchers said that someday people will start sharing their digital recipes, like now sending friends the song they like.
