At the end of the robot's left arm is an infrared spectrometer. When objects are placed up against the sensor, the robot fires off a beam of infrared light. The reflected light is then analyzed in real time to determine the object's chemical composition.Right. "Mistaken" for bacon. Apparently, inventing the hydrogen bomb was for pussies. Real men build human-craving robots.
"All foods have a unique fingerprint," Shimazu said. "The robot uses that data to identify what it is inspecting right there on the spot."...
When a reporter's hand was placed against the robot's taste sensor, it was identified as prosciutto. A cameraman was mistaken for bacon.
Tasty, smoked, human, served up with eggs easy over and a side of home fries.
BTW, if I were the reporter, I'd be feeling pretty superior right now. Bacon's good and all, but prosciutto is delicious.
...And now I've gone and endorsed robots categorizing humans based on how tasty we are. I - and therefore we - deserve extinction.
