Video: Super-efficient Chicken Breast Deboning Robot

First the strawberry-picking robot, now another super-efficient industrial robot from Japan. This one is the brainchild of Mayekawa Manufacturing, and it can automatically debone chicken breasts – quickly and accurately.

To be more concrete, Mayekawa says the robot can debone about 1,500 chicken breasts in one hour, theoretically replacing ten human workers. The key factor here is an advanced image recognition function, which makes it possible to make accurate cuts: at the end of the deboning process, all that’s left are bones, according to the robot’s maker.

Mayekawa is selling the system in Japan and elsewhere for about $560,000.
