One of the things Japan is known for is the food, so much so that even its convenience stores are appreciated by many, where literally a multi-course good quality menu could be eaten in-store. Thanks to its wide selection of food. Lawson's, one of the country's convenience stores, is best known for its roast chicken.
These small, bite sized nuggets are homemade in the store and are delicious and great for on the go. However, as with most fried foods, they can get a bit stale in cold weather. However, this will not be the case in the future, as Lawson's Japan Karaage-kun (via SoraNews24), a roasted chicken robot, will be debuting on Dec. 1
This robot will be able to make roast chicken to order, and it seems to be 80% faster than traditional methods (which usually means Lawson's staff is doing the cooking). We can imagine it will take a little longer than taking a box of chicken off the counter, but if you value freshness, it might be worth the wait.
Customers have to pay at the counter where they will then do a paper bag. Then they scan the barcode on the robot, put in the bag, and they're ready to go. Lawson's company has been making headlines recently for its willingness to use new technologies. A few years ago, they began testing a self-checkout system that scanned and packed items for the customer, and a few months ago they also debuted with a robot that could make dumplings.
