From a simple cooking mode to an innovation allowing to save time by cooking more his favorite dishes
How did it happen?
Sean is a Dual-Ph.D student at Liverpool John Moores University, UK and University of Malaya, Malaysia who uses to cook his favourite dishes himself. During one of these moments in the kitchen, he realized the cooking process could be associated to a cooking mechanism since it is repeatable.
That’s how he designed the Bionic Cuisinier (BENC-115).
The robotic cooking system
The machine can cook up to 10 different dishes. According to Sean, there is a ‘‘guarantee that they would taste exactly the way they should.’’ The robotic system aims at reducing human intervention while cooking.
Its components comprise a robotic stirrer arm, a water dispenser, an induction cooker, a platform, ingredient containers, a cooking pot and a manual command button. For Sean, the design powered by 3D printing is certainly an eye-catcher of the robot.
Until now and from what we know, the robot already tested various foods, mostly Asian and some Liverpool famous food.
If there is a mass production, food industries could make use of it during road shows where speed and food quality are required.
Furthermore, in order to allow users to download new recipes into the machine, an Application will also be designed.
Last but not least, Sean calls for the willingness of all to support innovations. Indeed, with more funding, he could easily pursue his research, even commercialize the product.
All donors will have a place on the Bionic community page and will take part in the advancement of the project.
