Mometum Machines Burgerbot
Momentum Machines' new robot chef is a burgerbot. It takes pre-sliced ingredients and combines them for bespoke burgers at a rate of 360 burgers per hour.
(Another burger from Momentum's Burgerbot)
Our alpha machine frees up all of the hamburger line cooks in a restaurant.It does everything employees can do except better:
The labor savings allow a restaurant to spend approximately twice as much on high quality ingredients and the gourmet cooking techniques make the ingredients taste that much better.
- It slices toppings like tomatoes and pickles immediately before it places the slice onto your burger, giving you the freshest burger possible.
- Our next revision will offer custom meat grinds for every single customer.
- Want a patty with 1/3 pork and 2/3 bison ground to order? No problem.
- Also, our next revision will use gourmet cooking techniques never before used in a fast food restaurant, giving the patty the perfect char but keeping in all the juices.
- Itís more consistent, more sanitary, and can produce ~360 hamburgers per hour.
It can do all this in just 24 square feet of kitchen space.
SF readers have been salivating about robotic chefs running restaurants ever since Edgar Rice Burroughs wrote about automated restaurants in his 1912 novel A Princess of Mars. Anthony Boucher wrote about a robot chef in his 1943 short story Robinc.
Momentum Machines may meed to start work on a robot busboy, as suggested by Philip K. Dick in his 1964 novel Lies, Inc..
