Who else is disappointed it was not an anthropomorphic robot. Possible with a weird uncanny valley face.

Results pretty much what you’d expect: better than poorly-made human sushi, tasty enough but not like a careful person makes. Makes really bad sushi fast, if the cook doesn’t know what they’re doing: mushy, bad flavor, etc.

Wow, cool to see the live performance. This gives the nostalgia a good shake.

I realize that not only am I demonstrating that I am an Old with this complaint, but I am also screaming into a void that could not care less, but…

Is it really too much to ask to have a simple linear narrative video to show the whole process, which also doesn’t constantly jump cut away from each image before I can even get my eyes to focus.

Fer fuck’s sake!

No. I thought the same thing – like is our attention span so short these days the cuts can’t be more than 500ms apart?

That works too.

2400 nigiri balls/hour? I don’t think I can eat them that fast…but I’ll try.

If there’s a robot that makes Dim Sum I’ll go head to head with you. Just for giggles.
