Robots make food
Good god – robots are flipping burgers now – time to study hard
Burger flipping robot
Flippy was engineered as a robotic arm that used thermal and 3-D imaging and camera vision to sense when to flip and remove burgers from the grillHowever, according to USA Today, the robot could not keep up with demand.
Founded in 2015, Zume Pizza uses robotics and artificial intelligence to make pizza more quickly.
The robotic pizza-making process mirrors the traditional method, albeit with a few high-tech twists. Rather than hand-toss dough balls into their circular pizza shape, which can be tiresome and mind-numbingly repetitive for human chefs, a customized hydraulic press, dubbed Doughbot, smashes the ball into shape. The pizza crust then travels down a conveyor belt to the saucing station, where a pair of extruders named Pepe and Giorgio slather the dough with marinara or alfredo sauce. From there, a fourth robot named Marta uses a multi-axis arm to evenly spread the sauce. The pizza then continues along the conveyor to the topping station — one of the few steps in this process where human hands are involved.
