Tokyo, Japan, June 9, 2009--A cooking robot pours batter for okonomiyaki--savory pancakes popular in Japan--onto a heated grill during a demonstration at the International Food Machinery and Technology Exhibition.

Designed by engineers at Osaka-based firm Toyo Riki, the robot can stir ingredients, pour batter onto a grill, flip the cakes with a spatula, and serve them up on a plate.
