The Chinese are replacing their highly paid chefs with robots – noodle cutting robots. The robots are called ‘Chef Cui’ and they are replacing humans in the face of rising labor costs in China. Each robot cost around US $2000, which is cheaper than paying a chef at least US $5,000 a year. The robot is very simple with a single DOF shaving arm that is used to shaving lumps of dough attached to a moving arm. 3,000 units have already been sold.
