New SF restaurant to use robotic burger maker

I have my doubts about machines making better (and cheaper) burgers than people. According to the article, they will be grilled to order.

...the focus of the restaurant will be on the robot burger maker. Momentum’s advertisement states that the restaurant will “feature the world-premiere of our proprietary and remarkable new advances in technology that enable the automatic creation of impossibly delicious burgers at prices everyone can afford.”

SFGate




Edit: Here's a diagram of the machine which I think was demonstrated on an old episode of I Love Lucy.

If the price is right, I'm in.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

This doesn't surprise me. They probably can't find any help in SF unless they pay them at least $20 per hour, and the lease is probably 100 times more than it would be in flyover country. And yet people still want burgers.

I could see a fast food place using the basic technology to replace employees and increase consistancy. Wendy's can pare it with the self-order kiosk and self-serve drinks to virtually eliminate all staff. Just need someone for cleanup, and a troubleshooter.

If you want a good burger, grill ground chuck.

I would LOVE to open a Robot Dipped ice cream shop! What with all these signs stating their ice cream is hand dipped! How stupid. How else you gonna get ice cream out of the big tubs unless by hand? Until I can make a robot to dip it out! My sign would proudly state: Robot Dipped Ice Cream! Hands Down, the Best! popcorn smiley

Just commute cheap labor in a hundred miles every day on those free high speed trains the benevolent government is going to serve the 1% with.

Just another work sector that's getting automated. Cook staff earn far less than wait staff, so the need for automation is high in places like SF.

don't forget to appease th lawyers with a " this ice cream scooped by equipment that also handles or has been in the vicinity of nuts" warning label.

I've always enjoyed watching the Krispy Kreme machine make donuts.

You want to see the price of a burger come down? This automated stuff will become way less popular once someone invents the Fully Robotic CEO and Management Team in-a-box. Now we're talking real labor savings!

I believe I would eat a robot made burger. That pic looks like a very tasty sandwich!

At least I wouldn't have to worry about a disgruntled worker (there are many in the fast food biz) spitting on my sandwich (or worse). smiley-shocked003

I also wouldn't have to worry about the robot not washing it's hands after using the restroom either. smiley-shocked003

Absolutely.

But that wasn't a handy option, and I was driving right past an In-n-Out.


I've always enjoyed watching the Krispy Kreme machine make donuts.

Likewise.

But that's the extend of my involvement with Krispy Kreme donuts.
