US students develop cookie-making robot

In a development that could dramatically change the food manufacturing industry, or even just humble kitchens, students in the US have taught a robot how to bake cookies from scratch.

The robot looks the part in a chef’s hat, and can identify cooking utensils and ingredients on its own.

Graduate student Mario Bollinio has been teaching the robot to bake, while Jenny Barry and a team of undergraduate students have been focusing on the equally important task of cleaning up after itself.
