We need a noodle-making robot in the TrendHunter office, if only to curb the amount of instant noodles consumed on a daily basis. The Sanuki Shokunin robot makes traditional, high-quality buckwheat soba noodles and other varieties of delicious pasta.

The Sanuki Shokunin noodle-making robot can create up to 700 servings an hour and mechanizes the traditionally labour-intensive work of hand-making soba noodles.

Implications - The hectic nature of the kitchen environment often leaves very little time for prep. Traditional methods will always remain in the kitchen, but that doesn't mean the industry can't thrive on machinery that will lessen the work load and increase productivity. These items can be useful outside the restaurant environment for consumers looking to take the stress out of cooking after a hard day's work.
