Robot Burger Flippers are Here

Posted 4 Aug 2003 at 02:33 UTC by steve Share This

According to a Reuter's story, McDonald's is testing a robot burger flipping machine at their Romeoville, Illinois innovation store. The machine was designed in Sweden and eliminates the need for human burger flippers. The machine takes the burgers from an integrated freezer and cooks them on the grill. If the testing is successful, McDonald's may roll them out in more stores, fullfilling the prediction in last week's article that robots would begin displacing human unskilled labor. A bit more information is available in a CSP Info Group story.
