In the last ten-to-fifteen years of innovation on Twitch, content creators have been trying to perfect the art of cooking up pure, unbridled chaos. From Twitch Plays Pokemon to Twitch Plays Halo, the concept of allowing a Twitch chat to control a game or an experience all from the comfort of their chat window has made a significant impact on the internet at-large.
But now, one vtuber has taken this idea to its logical next step — what if you let your Twitch chat control the appliances in your kitchen? Introducing uwu_to_owo, a self-proclaimed “mad scientist vtuber” who has carved out a niche in the ‘let Twitch chat control my kitchen appliances’ genre. Most recently, this creator has built a “robot” chef, connected to their Twitch chat, and programmed to cook fried rice.
It did not go well.
In the video, we are told that, based on the chat command, the robot was programmed to do certain tasks, such as flip the wok (which, more often than not, resulted in the food going flying), season food, and stir the food. And, it goes without saying that, as soon as the chat learned the commands, they spammed them to the point where the creator’s stove was broken.
On the bright side, at least they don’t need to worry about being evicted for the noise or breaking their stove. In the replies of a post on Twitter, the creator explained that they own their house, so they just need to replace their stove. I guess there are worse problems to have.
This is but one of the chaotic experiments being conducted by uwu_to_owo. A casual glance at their most recent Twitch clips include “The Golden Blender,” where they try blending what looks to be a motherboard or other assorted computer chip that almost immediately sends the blender to kingdom come; also, there’s another experiment where they give the Twitch chat control of a butcher knife, which—let’s be real, is one of the worst ideas I have ever heard, but—sure is entertaining.
