The robot was built by the restaurant owner, and not some geeky Japanese scientists. The customers can order via a computer in the restaurant, with the ramen robot can make more than 40 million different types of ramen. everything is travelling on a conveyor belt, where a human is adding the topping(no robot for that simple task?), and in the end the customer can eat it’s cyber-ramen peacefully on the little restaurant.
