You can’t make an omelet without breaking in robots

Researchers in Switzerland have come up with a robot that seems to “learn” various cooking tasks depending on the implement placed in its claw (knife, whisk, hunk of cheese) and the motion initially enacted by researcher manipulation (slice, beat, grate). We could see this capability built into, say, a kitchen device to help people with mild to moderate dexterity impairments, including those of us with sore wrists from our own slicing, beating, and grating.
