Today in Food Tech: Grill Cleaning Robot and Zero Gravity Cocktail Glass

By: Lawrence Bonk

The burgeoning bromance between food and technology continues unabated. Here are two more snazzy gadgets that make the walls between food and tech thinner than ever before.

First up, a grill cleaning robot. That's right. a robot whose entire purpose is to clean your dang grill.

Of course, not even the Grillbot can clean up the emotional mess you made after your seventh beer. Regardless, you can pick up your own for $130.

Next, a cocktail glass intended for use in outer space. Drinking from a cup or glass in zero G has long been known to be difficult. The solution?
