Momentum Machines is planning on launching the very first robot fast food restaurant in San Francisco. The company developed a machine that can create personalized gourmet burgers without the assistance of a human.

The robot can complete the work of three cooks and can churn out 400 burgers in one hour. The company has even put out a job ad for the restaurant asking for engineers and analytical people. They describe their team as "roboticists from institutions including Berkeley and Stanford and firms like Tesla and NASA as well as product managers with restaurant experience." This new restaurant's staff will truly be unlike any other.

The introduction of robot fast food restaurants will allow companies to save on overhead but at the cost of human resources losing their jobs to machines.
