Robots Invade Restaurants

Restaurants Launch Initiatives to Automate Their Kitchens

At Creator in San Francisco, California, USA, a glass-faced machine funnels brioche buns down a ramp, where they're sliced, toasted and topped. Another part of the machine grinds and cooks hamburger patties, before slapping them on top. Human hands are nowhere to be found in the cooking process. Instead, the machine is fully automated, the result of an eight-year project to develop a robot capable of handling every human hamburger-making task—faster and more efficiently.
