Glimpse into home of the future.
A world-first kitchen robot, driven by Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) is offering Australian consumers a unique insight into the kitchen of the future.
The Rotimatic, which has recently launched in Australia, is the world’s first and only fully automated flatbread making robot, producing rotis and puris in minutes, with its offering soon to include wraps, tortillas, pizza bases and other flatbread variants.
Rotimatic uses advanced robotics, AI and IoT technology to learn and adapt over time, and new functionality, recipes and troubleshooting can all be completed remotely via an internet connection.
Pranoti Nagarkar, co-founder of Zimplistic Pte Ltd – the company that manufactures Rotimatic – said the Rotimatic is at the forefront of a coming kitchen revolution, where traditional devices will be replaced by intelligent machines that automate many traditional tasks.
“In the coming decades, technology will bring about a complete change to the way we interact with our homes and kitchens, and the Rotimatic is at the forefront of this change,” she said. “Kitchen robots, AI driven smart machines and 3D food printers are all very real possibilities in the kitchens of the future.”
“With health and convenience being top priorities, the Rotimatic is designed to simplify and change the way people cook by completely automating the entire process allowing users to spend less time in the kitchen without compromising on health.”
The machine works by users loading ingredients into the machine and selecting how many rotis they would like to make, and after six minutes of warm-up, it begins producing fresh rotis every 90 seconds.
Rishi Israni, co-founder and CEO, built the software capabilities of Rotimatic. His vision was to make Rotimatic the smartest device in the kitchen that gets better after every use.
“We wanted Rotimatic to be smart and versatile in order to leverage the untapped $US250 billion kitchen appliances segment and offer a product that would take away the hassles of flatbread making and allow people more time with their families. Currently, about 25% of the world’s population eat flatbreads on a regular basis,” he said.
The Rotimatic companion app which is currently used to provide customer support, will also act as a chef’s assistant, allowing users to turn on and automatically update the device, download new recipes, and more in the near future.
Rotimatic is priced at $US999 (approximately $A1,275) plus shipping. Orders are available exclusively to customers on the waitlist. To join the waitlist, sign up at www.rotimatic.com/list.
