The sushi chef at my favorite local Japanese joint might have reason to fear the future: There’s a machine that can whip out 400 rolls per hour!
That’s a lot of maki, my friends. But the SushiBot’s up to the challenge. Just feed it ingredients, and watch it assemble (churn out) rolls and bite-size morsels (nigiri).
I don’t think Nobu would even give this a second glance, but I could see bigger chain restaurants hopping on this. And if they do, I hope they keep it back in the far end of the kitchen — there’s something kind of unappetizing about the way it plops the nuggets of rice out, no?
