Now, getting a robot into the baking game might not sound likely, despite the fact that some of them are now able to receive simple natural language commands and scoop you some ice cream. The Rotimatic is not so much a robot as suggested, but rather, a smart flatbread making machine. This smart kitchen appliance intends to make it a snap to conjure your own hot flatbreads in the kitchen, since doing so by hand is tiresome and time consuming.
Necessity being the mother of all invention, Pranoti Nagarkar, the inventor behind the Rotimatic, came up with this appliance that is capable of pulling together flour, oil and water from a trio of hoppers, before mixing them into a dough and baking it into bread. The amount of time required to get the job done? Less than what you need to brush your teeth and take a bath – we are talking about it being under two minutes, now how about that?
There are variables you can tweak including the thickness, baking duration, quantity of oil and type of flour, where all of it is done via the built-in LCD display. Those early birds who are willing to give the Rotimatic a go can place a pre-order, and hopefully you will still qualify for the $600 price point, otherwise it will cost $1,000 a pop.
