Researchers at Panasonic have developed a new robot designed to rinse dishes before stacking them inside a dish washer. Check it out:
Our verdict? It looks like a useless piece of junk. I mean, have you seen how this thing rinses the dishes? It certainly won’t get food off the plates by simply dumping them in water for a few seconds. And in addition to that, it’s way too slow to be effective in a restaurant, where dishes would pile up to the ceiling in no time because the robot can’t keep up. I guess we’ll have to wait a few years until they develop a faster, more effective robot to do the task. Until then, keep on washing the dishes yourselves, my friends.
