The World’s First Robot Roti Maker
Making roti, a traditional staple food for millions of people worldwide, is equal parts art and science. To achieve the unleavened Indian bread’s signature look, feel and taste, you need the right mix of ingredients (flower, water and oil), the perfect kneading and flattening method, and on-point heat and cook times.
Rotimatic is the world’s first fully automated robot roti-maker. At 39 pounds, the 40 cm x 40 cm x 40 cm device looks like an oversized bread maker, but it’s actually a fascinating piece of engineering that combines 10 motors, 15 sensors and 300 parts to spit out baked rotis at a pace of about one per minute.
