Here's The Burger-Flipping Robot That Could Put Fast-Food Workers Out Of A Job

İmage

A company called Momentum Machines has built a robot that could radically change the fast-food industry and have some line cooks looking for new jobs.

The company's robot can "slice toppings like tomatoes and pickles immediately before it places the slice onto your burger, giving you the freshest burger possible." The robot is "more consistent, more sanitary, and can produce ~360 hamburgers per hour." That's one burger every 10 seconds.

The next generation of the device will offer "custom meat grinds for every single customer. Want a patty with 1/3 pork and 2/3 bison ground to order? No problem."

Momentum Machines cofounder Alexandros Vardakostas told Xconomy his "device isn’t meant to make employees more efficient. It’s meant to completely obviate them." Indeed, marketing copy on the company's site reads that their automaton "does everything employees can do, except better."

Life is like a penny, you can spend it on what you like, but you can ONLY spend it once.

They need to save money obviously

Global sales for fast food giant McDonald's have slumped to a 10-year record low with Australia singled out as a 'weak' market.

Internationally, Australia is part of the worst performing sector for this year's second quarter, the Asia Pacific Middle East and Africa operation, where sales fell by a massive 7.3 per cent.

McDonald's reports 7.3% decline in profits - and Australia is among the countries driving the slump

McDonald's chief executive Don Thompson defined under performing Australian and Japanese markets as weak and said the Illinois-based company was concentrating on 'stabilising' key priority markets in both Australia and Japan, as well as Germany and the U.S., reported the Sydney Morning Herald.

Looks like the only places providing a profit for McD is The Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa region (1.1 percent increased profit). Not surprisingly.
