NEC robot taster

Well, it’s better than chicken, I suppose. NEC has got together with Mie University to design a robot taster, who can chomp on wine, cheese, meats and canapes and then tell you what they are. Why? Oh, just for the pure robotic fun of it, I daresay. However, there’s a flaw. Apparently when one journalist […]...More
