Japanese company Connected Robotics has created a robot that can consistently make perfect soft-serves in just under 40 seconds.
The Soft Cream Robot machines come in either dog or dinosaur form, with a mechanical arm protruding from the front. Upon ordering a serving, a cone is released from the side of the machine and lands in the cone holder. Next, the arm is positioned under the dispenser, where it gently rotates to get a perfectly molded soft-serve. When completed, the robot faces the customer and serves up the dessert while gesturing to indicate the soft-serve is ready to be taken. Connected Robotics is also offering to work with buyers to customize their machines in the form of other characters.
