This is Flippy. He can cook burgers for you. He uses cameras and sensors to see what is on the griddle and what is cooked. It can even put the burger on the bun for you when it is cooked. It is the latest invention from Miso Robotics.
Flippy CEO David Zito said this about it:
“We focus on using AI and automation to solve the high pain points in restaurants and food prep. That’s the dull, dirty and dangerous work around the grill, the fryer, and other prep work like chopping onions. The idea is to help restaurants improve food quality and safety without requiring a major kitchen redesign.”
“Tasting food and creating recipes will always be the purview of a chef. And restaurants are gathering places where we go to interact with each other. Humans will always play a very critical role in the hospitality side of the business given the social aspects of food. We just don’t know what the new roles will be yet in the industry.”
Could this take your job or help? We’ll see what the future brings. It is definitely an interesting concept to think about.
