Friday Video: Robots cook sausages for breakfast. Not to be expected as short-order cooks working at Denny’s very soon.

Everyone’s favorite slow-mo domestic robot, the Willow Garage open-source PR2, is at it again. After its big hit videos folding towels and baking cookies, PR2 flew to Germany to cook sausages (Weisswurst) with Rosie the robot, built at the Technical University of Munich. Note that most of the video has been sped up by 15x (look for the little indicator) so the robots appear to be working faster than they are. Nevertheless, an impressive feat for a couple of autonomous machines.
