My initial sketch was for a pancake cooking robot that was capable of flipping the pancake/doing tasks but only when buttons were pressed by a human. The purpose behind the piece is to see how people interact with a machine that is so close to being fully automated but must be actively interacted with by a human otherwise it will burn the pancakes. This initial idea was, of course, way too ambitious to simulate in its entirety, so I changed the idea to a robot calmly cooking a pancake, but gets surprised when interrupted by a keyboard press, and then takes out its frustration at being interrupted and ruining its pancake by hitting the floor.
