Brace yourselves for the future because Miso Robotics built a burger flipping robot. Appropriately named Flippy, this new robotic kitchen assistant cooks burgers, chicken and buns perfectly every time using a collection of cameras and sensors that monitor burger temps to ensure every thing ends up on finished at precisely the right moment. The 6-axis robot is mounted to a wheeled cart and is intelligent enough to move out of the way when it requires assistance from actual human beings, which is a good thing at this point because it can’t tackle cheese, condiments or french fries… yet. There are already plans in the works at Miso for robots or upgrades that will fry, prep and plate an entire meal. All of the robots are designed to “help restaurants improve food quality and safety without requiring a major kitchen redesign,” so they’re more for automation than replacing people. We can’t wait to be able to eat a burger that’s basically made by a robot.
