Students at MIT have taught a robot how to bake cookies from scratch. It's a little heavy handed with the spatula, but the videos of it in action are nevertheless fascinating to watch!

August 4th, 2011

With a chef's hat, plastic wrapped arms, and a great deal of technology, this baking bot can bake cookies more or less on its own.  It identifies bowls, mixes ingredients, and even places the dough into an oven.  While it might not be replacing any pastry chefs any time soon this baking bot is amazing.  The project is part of MIT's CSAIL program and while graduate student Mario Bollini has been working on teaching the robot how to bake, Jenny Barry and a team of undergraduate students have been working on getting it to clean up after itself.

Here is a sped up video of the robot in action.
They are using the PR2 from Willow Garage. Seen above with its external shell on and removed it serves as an interesting platform for robotic experimentation.
This video features an early version of the programming... I especially love the way it unceremoniously dumps empty bowls on to the floor.
Other PR2 projects have included things like having it fetch you cold beer from the refrigerator.
