Burger Making Made Easy With A Flipping Robot

written by Winnie Wangui 9th March 2018

Imagine walking up to your favourite fast food spot with the intention of getting burgers. You g through the normal process of selecting the one you want, paying for it then when you get to the burger making station, you find a one-handed robot flipping your chicken burger with such finesse and fixing it to your liking.

This is what you would get when you visit the CaliBurger restaurant in Pasadena.Flippy, the robot is fitted with thermal eyes which monitor the cooking process and a spatula-shaped arm that flips the patties around and sets them aside when ready.

Here’s a video of Flippy busy during the lunchtime shift at the restaurant:
