Its saturday morning, 11:30 am or 12 noon. You wake up, groggy, sweaty and possibly in the same clothes you were in last night. If you're like me, theres nothing you want more than a big breakfast.

Me & Rico, Case & Point.

Lately i've realized that a big breakfast is by far one of my favorite things about the weekend. You wake up, to the smell of bacon wafting up the run down stairs to discover not only bacon, but a Smörgåsbord of eggs, toast, waffles, hashbrowns and often fruit. Either this, or you man up and make it yourself, either way the feeling of satisfaction is close to unparalleled.

Anyways, the whole thing that sparked this rant is something my buddy showed me the other day... ya'll Japanese are crazy...

The Motoman SDA10 from Yaskawa Electric is basically a chef-bot. It can grill foot with manual precision and when done with grilling the dish, Motoman even puts it on a plate and applies condiments. Designed to operate independently alongside humans in the workplace, the 135-centimeter (4.5 ft) tall, 220-kilogram (480 lb) industrial robot has 15 joints — 7 in each arm and one in the torso — allowing a wide range of motion for the job, whether it be on the factory floor or behind the kitchen counter. Anyone still thinking of getting me something for christmas...heres an idea.
