A robot in Berlin, Germany has been given tongs and access to a hot grill, and taught to cook sausage.
Just like humans, it locates empty spaces on the grill and places sausages as needed, eyes them and turns them to ensure even crisping of the skin, and plates them when they’re done.
The machine, created by nonprofit research center FZI, cooked and served 200 sausages at an event this month.
According to FZI: “the robot also commented many of its actions with funny German sayings like ‘heiss und fettig’, which literally translated means ‘hot and greasy’.”
