flippy-burger-robot

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.

In a world where gadgets are judged on how well they do their jobs despite being available in the smallest packages possible, the Hunt23 Ultra Compact Flashlight reigns supreme. They took all the life-proof features of the incredibly bright Hunt22 (iceproof / smashproof / waterproof / fireproof) and upgraded the titanium body with a tiny pry bar on the back that can be used as a flathead screwdriver or to open boxes, bottles, bags and cans. It’s also TSA-compliant so you don’t have to worry about traveling with it. This flashlight is the EDC tool you’ve been missing.
