After eight years of development, the automation solutions provider Creator is preparing to introduce its robotic burger restaurant im September 2018. The company is reportedly backed by investors such as Google's GV and raised at least $ 18.3 million last year.
Alex Vardakostas, co-founder and creator CEO, said his restaurant has many benefits. For example, the average restaurant is "50 percent larger in terms of square footage," and the robot is smaller than the back of most fast food restaurants (QSRs). In fact, is the kitchen.
"They roll it in and connect it," Vardakostas said.
Customers order their burgers through a tablet, then the robot slices, toast and butter the bun, before placing an exact amount of sauces on it. Cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, cheese blocks and other toppings are cut and added, and the robot grinds the meat when an order is placed.
The news comes when the Pasadena-based startup Miso Robotics is ready to introduce Flippy, the automated, fast-food burger pinball machine – to many burger boys and low-skill workers in general. Flippy is set to roll out in 50 Cali burger restaurants around the world over the next two years.
Misos Burger-Bot can turn a burger twice as fast as a human with its unique arm and is powered by deep machine learning. Although Flippy is still just an assistant today, she can use feedback loops to learn from her colleagues in the kitchen and from her own mistakes. It still needs human hands to cut vegetables and put cheese on burger patties, but those are skills that it could theoretically learn – and which a similar robot from Momentum Machines already has – or completely out of its $ 15 an hour Kitchen companions take over. 19659009] "The kitchen can be fully automated," said David Zito, CEO of Miso Robotics. "We really see ourselves as a technology company that happens to be selling cheeseburgers."
