Popular Science reports that lovers of cashew chicken can rejoice.

A joint effort by students at Yangzhou University, Shanghai Jiaotong University, and a business in Shenzhen have created a fully-automated robot that can cook 600 classic Chinese dishes with a simple touchscreen selection.

Although details of the invention process have yet to be released, sources report that one only needs to dispense the ingredients into the machine, program it, and await a delicious meal.

There’s no demonstration video yet either, but in the meantime, an earlier version at 2009’s Chinese Industry Fair here whips up an order of kung pao chicken.
