Unlike the Tin Man, the joints here won't need oiling.

But will it flip out if it becomes self-aware? We may have a Skynet in our hands.

The whole meaning of okonomiyake is lost if a robot is going to make it. Who wants these inventions that will make the people more lazy.

"But will it 'flip out' if it becomes self-aware? We may have a Skynet in our hands."

Can't tell if this meant as a pun or not... Would be okonimigiri if this happens though?

Good,these machines tech can even be further improved, can be used in McDonald's fast food, it will make jobs in the robotics industry.

Robotics industry,still in infancy. More Robots could be used more in making train tracks,roads and bridges.

There could be more jobs created in assembling robots in factories,like people today do in assembling cars in car industry.

Waste of time and resources. It's kind of like a Rube Goldberg machine--you know, a complicated piece of machinery just to crack an egg.
