Noodle restaurant turns to robot
A new noodle restaurant in China has captured diners' attention by employing a noodle-making robot.
The restaurant in Jilin City, north-east China's Jilin Province, has attracted many locals to come and try noodles made by 'Ultraman'.
Restaurant owner Qian Hu bought the robot for 20,000 Yuan (£2,000) and believes its efficiency is twice that of a human worker.
He explained: "More importantly I don't need to pay him, and for a consecutive work of 12 hours it only consumes 3 kWh of electricity. And the noodles it slices are even thinner than those of human workers."
