Cutting-edge robots pour beer and make sushi at trade show in Bangkok

These cutting-edge robots show how they can make sushi, pour beers and even play chess.

The artificial intelligence machines were being displayed at a manufacturing event yesterday (June 19) in Bangkok, Thailand.

They included the Dual-Arm SCARA robot from Japanese firm Kawasaki showing off how it can prepare the country’s national dish of sushi.

While Swiss firm ABB has developed a robot that can rival the traditional barmaids and barmen - by pouring a pint and even checking every last drop has left the bottle.

Other devices include packing and storage robots that industry figures say will revolutionise the workplace in the coming years. The event, Robot X Manufacturing Expo 2019, runs until Saturday (June 22).

Organisers say the trade show is ''the most comprehensive event on manufacturing robots, software, solutions, and supporting industries in ASEAN’’.

More than 30 brands from around the world attended the event in Thailand, which is ''one of the hottest and growing industrial automation markets in South East Asia''.
