The Gourmet Robot

1We travel for experience and our backpacking experience would not be complete without having a food trip in the country we visit. But have you ever experienced expecting so much from the local restaurant in the foreign country that you are visiting only to be disappointed? Well, you are not alone! No less than Thailand’s Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has also been tired of these bad restaurants serving pseudo food. It was for the aforementioned reason that the Prime Minister came up with the idea of creating “an intelligent robot that measures smell and taste in food ingredients through sensor technology in order to measure taste like a food critic.” The robot looks to objectively identify the balance of spices in, say, a proper green curry, rather than subjectively critique a dish. Now we know that the food we eat is worth our money and that our experience in a foreign land is worth our time, thanks to this robot!
