During his early Abhishek used to see his mother spending hours in the kitchen and cooking food for her entire family. Once it so happened that due to his mother's illness, he was asked to do the cooking. He then for the first time realized how tedious the job really was for ladies to cook every single day throughout the year. This motivated him to develop a machine for his mother, which could reduce the effect for cooking food and cook anything instantly. This lead to the innovation of the World's 1st Automatic Cooking machine also known as the ROBOCOOK.
Abhishek conceived a rough idea about a machine, which would have boxes to hold different ingredients of a particular recipe. The machine would be operated using a recipe card, which will be programmed as per the cooking style of the person for that particular dish. Abhishek wrote to NIF, which linked him to ISM, Dhanbad. The machine could be made but how to make the card, which will make it operate, became the biggest challenge there. After spending some more time, Abhishek came back and pondered over the problem. He took help of his Physics books and using a normal watch, he designed a card, which could be programmed.
The first version of this machine made successfully in 2009 could make tea and kheer (kind of rice pudding).This machine is an electrically operated automatic food making machine where only ingredients are to be loaded in boxes and the cooking is completed according to the recipe card being used. The machine has eight boxes and a central container. The boxes house the different ingredients, which fall into the central cooking container as per the predefined timing in the recipe card. This recipe card is preprogrammed. Once the recipe card gets inserted, the display on the machine shows the information about the different ingredients that need to be put in the respective boxes. Once this is done, the user may sit back and relax. The machine will automatically sound an alarm once the recipe gets made.
He thought innovative ideas and develop his every idea on his own way. He has been recognized as the youngest inventor His work has been selected and published at a young age of 15. He also got president award, twice for his innovation. His name is mentioned in world book of record.
