Today, at Germany's first-ever trade fair dedicated to the wonders of doner kebab, new technology was unveiled that promises to change street-meat forever more: FFDR-V1004, the doner robot.
Doner kebab is the familiar dish, Turkish in origin but ubiquitous in Germany, of meat grilled on a vertical rotating spit and sliced off upon request. (It's kin to Greek gyros and Middle Eastern shawarma.) Until now, though, the slicing of the meat has been performed by the clumsy hands of humans.
To quote the manufacturer's site:
EXCELLENCES OF DONER ROBOTS
Five amazing, clean technologies that will set us free, in this month's energy-focused issue. Also: how to build a better bomb detector, the robotic toys that are raising your children, a human catapult, the world's smallest arcade, and much more.
