Moley has created the world's first robotic kitchen. Featuring an advanced, fully functional robot integrated into a beautifully designed, professional kitchen, it cooks with the skill and flair of a master chef. The prototype was premiered to widespread acclaim at Hanover Messe, the international robotics show.
The consumer version set for launch in 2017 will be supported by an iTunes' style library of recipes.
This is the future and here it is today.

The prototype is the product of 12 months of development in collaboration with Shadow Robotics, Yachtline, DYSEGNO, Sebastian Conran and Stanford University Professor Mark Cutkosky.
A pair of fully articulated robotic hands now reproduce the entire function of human hands with the same speed, sensitivity and movement.
The cooking skills of Master Chef Tim Anderson, winner of the BBC Master Chef title were recorded on the system - every motion, nuance and flourish – then replayed as his exact movements through the robotic hands.
This is a confident step that provides basis for development of mass market.
Watching the robot is a genuinely pinch yourself moment, it was flawless

In 2017 Moley will launch the consumer version of the Robotic Kitchen. Sophisticated yet compact, it will feature the four key integrated kitchen items of robotic arms, oven, hob and touchscreen unit.
The kitchen is operated by its touch screen or remotely via smartphone. When not in use, the robotic arms retract from view. In robotic use, glass screens glide across the unit, enclosing it for safe use when there's no-one home.
Moley is capturing the imagination of many industries and sectors, and has been approached by major players in the restaurant industry, airlines, kitchen developers and even chef training schools.
The Moley Robotic Kitchen has attracted significant attention from housing developers, including an on-going discussion with a group managing $20b in housing assets and new builds. The Robotic kitchen allows developers to differentiate their stock, creating premium stock that can sell at a higher price. New buyers can also choose to incorporate the unit as an option in the specification stage.
The future is coming and it's coming to your kitchen

The Moley Robotic Kitchen is revolutionary for more than its automated cooking; it is also an iTunes-style library with a growing collection of recipes from around the world. Initially it starts with a plate of ingredients, eventually the system will be accessed anywhere remotely, with a delicious meal awaiting your arrival home!
3D recipe recording will open up an exciting new world for celebrity chefs and home cooks. Cooking professionals and owners will be able to present their creations to a huge new audience, with the potential to generate revenue through recipe sales globally
At Moley Robotics, there is no magic, only hands with multiple joints, numerous actuated degrees of freedom, tactile sensors and sophisticated control systems. This is what allows MK1 to download a recipe and reproduce it exactly as the MasterChef would have cooked it, wherever you are in the world.
This is an opportunity for people to enjoy very good food, and for a reasonable price.
Tim Anderson, Chef
We believe that more than 50 years after robots appeared in specialised manufacturing facilities, the advancements in automation, sensors and advanced software systems and associated cost curves mean we are at the point where robots will be seen more and more in the domestic environment.
