    Default Japan Breeds a Ramen Robot [video]

    Momozono Robot Ramen shop in Yamanashi, Japan is gaining popularity thanks to a robot that mixes ramen based on customer preferences reports Mainichi Daily News. Japanese engineers seem hell-bent on replacing human chefs with robots.

    Ramen revelers can customize their orders, via a computer screen, by choosing different levels of levels of soy sauce, salt, and richness of the soup. Momozono Robot Ramen founder and ramen robot inventor, Yoshihira Uchida, claims that more than 40 million different flavors can be created.

    For now, the noodles are cooked and inserted into the custom-machinated broth by a "human chef," but Uchida hopes to develop a way to automate this process and make his mark through mass production of the robot.

    The robot cost about $200,000 to construct. Small bowls of ramen go for about $3 and large bowls are priced at around $5, with the whole process taking about two minutes per bowl.

    We're all about novelty, but for those of us that donít have the superhuman taste buds required to discern between the millions of flavor nuances, or the need to eat immediately after ordering, couldnít they have given the ramen robot some personality? Watch the video to see it in action.
