    Wonder what metal it is.

    Also how the fuck did they get it embedded into the ground without disturbing the earth around it? That type of ground isn't exactly known for not reacting to someone digging.

    Only issue I have with that is how does it deal with preparation, inspection and pre-cleaning?

    Like, it's movements were basically mo-capped. That range of movement isn't great, if you mo-capped them cutting an oblong potato, how well does it cut a round one? Can it reliably peel a potato without wasting shit tons of it due to irregular shape? If there's a bad spot will it know how to cut it out and how much of it? If there is debris on or in the food can and will it remove it? Will it pre-wash your vegetables or do you have to do that yourself? Does it make bulk batches? Because that's something I do a lot of. Can I request it make like 10 servings of a dish for that, will it get fed up with my requests and strangle me because even if a professional chef mo-capped it, I'm still going to criticize robo-chef for it's shit spice choices.

    I'm pretty sure they tried one out in my city, or at least a machine like it and yeah, it definitely needs to improve a bunch still before it's actually viable beyond making for interesting novelty restaurants. But if they manage to do that it'd be kinda neat, yeah.
