Over the last few decades, the fast food industry has remained a bulletproof option for the low wage worker, but thanks to robotics those days appear to coming to an end. A new device promises to revolutionize the fast food world while delivering high-quality meals, Rube Goldberg style.
A company called Momentum Machines has designed a robotic burger maker called Burgeon designed to replace short order cooks in fast food restaurants. The company claims that the Burgeon can make up to 360 burgers per hour. And, in case there’s any doubt about the intention of the device, the company’s message, posted on its website, is clear, “Our alpha machine replaces all of the hamburger line cooks in a restaurant. It does everything employees can do except better.”
