Meet ‘Flippy,’ the Burger-Flipping Robot!

Meet ‘Flippy,’ a burger-flipping robot alternative to wage-earning workers.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.a796bafb6ce2

"A burger-flipping robot that doesn’t require a paycheck or benefits — and can grill 150 burgers per hour — is now a cook at CaliBurger.

It’s called ‘Flippy.’

The robot, or more specifically, a specialized industrial six-axis robotic arm bolted to the kitchen floor, works lunchtime shifts at the international burger chain’s Pasadena, Calif., location. It takes burger orders through a digital ticketing system, then flips the burger patties and removes them from the grill. It uses thermal and regular vision, as well as cameras, to detect when the raw meat is placed on the grill, then monitors each burger throughout its cooking process."

The message: Evolve to a higher level job or evaporate.

Post found off another board...just wanted to share here.

Are going away too. Positions in finance and insurance are being ate by bots, and sadly people don't get it. I am in Oklahoma, and I spoke to a VP of a local bank. He stated "If teachers strike and get their big pay wage, it will cause a lot of businesses to got to robots or move to Texas." Something to think about...Corporations need profits.
