As unhealthy as the food generally is in China (I've been there) this is probably a step up.
This FirstGen proto-type costs $253,000.00.

Figure that 10 workers in a Chinese restaurant are paid minimum wage of $10,500.00 a year and this machine, or one like it, can do the work of all of them.

In 3 years it will have paid for itself.

"Listen. And understand. That terminator is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead."

And it won't ever be rude to a customer, spit on their food, call in sick, need health insurance, sexually harass a co-worker.

If you're a businessman, what would you do, presented a choice like this?
Hire the robot.
