Robot Kitchen in Hong Kong
A robot performs as a chef prepares food at Robot Kitchen in Hong Kong. With a whir and a flash of lights, a robot whizzes to the restaurant table and takes a customer's order, while a second races to another table to deliver plates of steaming food. Robot Kitchen opened in July to cash in on the city's love affair with gadgets, claiming to be the world's first eatery staffed by machines.
