A new noodle restaurant in China has hit the headlines by employing a noodle-making robot.

According to Orange News, the restaurant in northeastern city of Jilin has been able to boost its business by giving the chef’s jacket to ‘Ultraman’ – a CNY20,000 (US$3,200) robot.

The restaurant’s owner Qian Hu said Ultraman is already paying for himself, turning out noodles at twice the speed of a human worker and bringing in extra business.

“More importantly I don’t need to pay him, and for a consecutive work of 12 hours it only consumes 3kWh of electricity. And the noodles it slices are even thinner than those of human workers,” Qian said.
