You can now order Miso Robotics’ latest kitchen robot for $30,000

Posted on

Miso Robotics today announced that its newest kitchen robot, Flippy Robot-on-a-Rail (ROAR), is now commercially available. The final design, which can cook up to 19 food items, mounts the robot on a recessed overhead rail to avoid interfering with human staff. On the backend, improvements to ChefUI, Miso’s software, aim to assist staff with workflows through a dashboard displayed on a 15.6-inch touchscreen mounted to the robot. An Intel depth sensor enables ChefUI to identify food and temperatures while learning to reclassify new foods introduced to ROAR.

ROAR costs around $30,000, but Miso plans to continue to price it down over the next year to $20,000 or less through a $1,000 monthly “robot-as-a-service” fee that includes regular updates and maintenance. ROAR can be purchased on a payment plan through TimePayments, and in the future, Miso says it will offer other financing options involving a lower upfront deployment fee and correspondingly

6 Peel-and-Stick Wallpaper Patterns for Your Latest DIY Decor Project

Posted on

As the new coronavirus spreads, I’m even more grateful than usual for my home, where I’m now spending basically all of my time. But studio life isn’t without challenges—doing everything in one room is hard. My peel-and-stick wallpaper habit is really a godsend right now.

I spent months deliberating over and applying (then reapplying) wallpaper until I found something that stuck in more ways than one. And now, in light of the newfound quality time I’m spending at home, those design choices have helped keep me sane. The moody floral mural behind my canopy bed makes it feel like I actually have a bedroom, even though I don’t have any walls designating one.

Peel-and-stick wallpaper helps control the
