Robot Sushi

This robot can make sushi in a matter of seconds


As robots get more advanced, they will likely take over many jobs in the future — including those of sushi chefs.

For a sneak peak at this impending automation, look no further than a new creation from robotics manufacturer Kawasaki. The robot can make sushi in under a minute.

First spotted by Gizmodo, the video shows a miraculous bot that assembles nigiri, the traditional type of sushi in which a piece of raw fish sits on a little ball of rice.

One robotic arm — on the right in the video below — clinches the sides of the pressed bundles of rice and moves completed nigiri pieces to a wooden block.
