You wouldn't expect robots to be into baking, but we've seen more than a few examples of the two coming together. Rotimatic is the latest smart kitchen appliance that wants to take the effort out of making Roti -- hot flatbreads. It was invented by Pranoti Nagarkar, who found making Roti by hand so tiresome, that she built the device to save her having to do it herself. It works by pulling together flour, oil and water from three hoppers, mixing them into a dough and baking it into bread in under two minutes.

Admittedly, you're buying a device that does one job, but at least you can tweak the options to decide upon the thickness, baking duration, quantity of oil and type of flour on the built-in LCD. It can also work out if the consistency of the dough is correct as it's making it, and if it's feeling a little off, can add ingredients to correct the problem before cooking. It all sounds impression but, unfortunately, advances in technology come at a price. For the lucky first few hundred pre-order customers, the Rotimatic will be available for $600, with all of the latecomers being asked to spend $1,000 on the hardware. We can't imagine too many people shelling out that sort of cash just to save a few minutes in the kitchen, but if you're sick to the back teeth of rolling your own flatbread, and you eat enough to justify that sort of investment, you can make your orders from now.
