    Robots Making Burgers in San Francisco - World's First Entirely Robotic Restuarant



    Prep4School

    On June 27th Creator unveiling its first robot restaurant in San Francisco.


    Customers can get a burger crafted by a 14-foot-long “culinary instrument” — also known as a robot for $6.


    Creator’s burger-making robot is a long stretch of sleek machinery, with 350 sensors, 50 actuators, and 20 computers to ensure every sauce is dispensed down to the milliliter and every spice down to the gram.


    Machines can cook burgers over a hot griddle and slice tomatoes more efficiently than a human can do.


    The strands of meat hang vertically and are lightly pressed together.


    Three compressed-air tubes hold fresh-baked brioche buns, ready to push one out to a belt when you place your order.


    An app will let people customize the exact ratios of all the ingredients.


    In September, Creator will be open to the public.

    The automation revolution is around the corner, and we need to think about what that means for our work force.
    Let the yoke fall from our shoulders
    Don't carry it all, don't carry it all
    We are all our hands in holders
    Beneath this bold and brilliant sun
    And this I swear to all
    -The Decemberists

    Did anyone else see that Season 11 episode of 'The X-Files' where Mulder and Scully eat at the automated sushi restaurant? A cautionary classic.

    This is the beginning of the end for McDonalds, Burger King and other fast food franchise workers. You'll just need someone to periodically fill the hoppers. Add self-serve order machines/ordering apps and you could run a franchise with as little as one person on any shift, particularly in food courts where the franchise has no seating or tables to clean.

    Hey, if they can program those robots to make a real-life fast food burger that actually LOOKS like the burger in the advertisement, I'm in.

    At $6 a burger it isn't really competition for fast food just yet.

    Also, no mention of the French fry robot either.

    That might be the easiest part if they go with a different form of frying, like those fryers that use very little oil combined with hot air.

    I suspect that there are commercial versions that work just fine.

    I think for some people there is a human element involved and they at least initially, might not feel comfortable dealing with a robot. The automation is as only as good as the humans that program it. Maybe years down the road they'll perfect it to the point where it is universally accepted by the public in general.
