Flippy the Robot is Flipping Burgers at a CaliBurger in Pasadena
Miso Robotics created a robotic kitchen assistant last year and it became instantly popular on the internet, they called it Flippy, and it was designed to flip, cook, and help prep the perfect burger every time. According to KTLA 5 News, the remarkable robot has got it’s first job flipping Southern California style burgers at a CaliBurger fast food restaurant in Pasadena.
Flippy uses thermal imaging, 3D and camera vision to sense when to flip – and when to remove. The device also learns through artificial intelligence – basically, the more burgers that Flippy flips, the smarter it gets. Right now, cheese and toppings are added by a co-worker.
In addition to consistency and safety, CaliBurger says the robot can cut down on costs. (read more)
