There’s Now a Robot That Can Flip Burgers

Mar 14, 2017

A California burger chain is installing a new robot as a replacement short-order cook. CaliBurger hired a robot dubbed "Flippy" at the joint's Pasadena location. Creators at Miso Robotics call Flippy a "kitchen assistant," meaning chefs and cooks will collaborate with the robot. The robot uses cameras, sensors, and artificial intelligence to see what it's cooking. Once a burger is cooked, Flippy picks it up and puts it on the bun. Miso Robotics has not revealed a price for its Flippy robot. If testing in Pasadena goes well, CaliBurger says it will put Flippy in 50 locations by the end of 2019.
