Momentum Machines, a robotic company in San Francisco, has recently unveiled its prototype of a machine that makes burgers. A job that is typically the responsibility of an assembly line in a fast food restaurant or diner, may soon be replaced by this burger-making technology.
The machine produces burgers by analyzing a variety of ingredients and toppings selected by the customer. This technology enables customers to quickly select what toppings they would like on their burger, the size of their bun and whether or not they would like it toasted. The robot prepares all the food itself, including slicing the tomatoes and grilling the patties.
Momentum Machines hopes to expand this concept and apply its revolutionary technology to chicken and fish sandwiches. The potential of this machine to cut down the staff of a particular restaurant and the wait times for consumers is boundless.
