Flippy, A Burger Flipping Robot That Can Identify Different Ingredients On Grill, Cook To Perfection


This is a video introduction to Miso Robotics’ Flippy, a burger-flipping robot that can identify burger patties and other ingredients on a grill (ie chicken, buns, burgers with cheese on top) and flip and cook them all accordingly. International burger chain CaliBurger plans to roll Flippys out in all their restaurants over the next few years. I do not. GW’s Burger Shack will continue doing things the way we always have: by human hand, and with a low C health inspection rating. “Did you just drop that patty on the floor?” Ten second rule. “Isn’t it the five second rule?” It’s ten when it’s somebody else’s food.

Keep going for a video of Flippy doing his thing (taking our jobs).

Thanks to Jerm, who prefers his burgers flipped by a human who can toss them over their shoulder and catch them on a plate behind their back. Showmanship!

  • The person’s smile at 0:46 is a nervous smile about his impending pink slip.

    The person’s smile at 0:57 is a happy smile, He is thinking about the profits that will be reaped from his robot workforce. He will save thousands a month in labor and insurance costs, but his customers will still pay the same retail price.

  • I’m mostly good with this. Fast food has always been about efficiency. When McD switched from short order chef to a row of single-step employees those specialized skills of short order cooks were relegated to locations who couldn’t afford the capital to improve efficiency.

    If I’m spending $1 on a cheap-shit burger I’d gladly take the robot-made burger over paying some schlub’s salary so they can sweat, shed dander, and spit in my food. Granted, the odds that I’ve never consumed any junkie blood in my life are pretty low.

    It should be known to everyone that no jobs are safe from automation. The easier the job is, the quicker the automation army will eclipse it.

    There are already rather uncomplicated programs that do things like write news articles, write music, generate visual art, etc.

  • Just because a program can write news articles, write music and generate visual art doesn’t mean they’re any good at it.

  • The same can be said of humans.

  • Touch√©.

  • While I agree that no job is safe from automation, we’re very, very far off from robots taking over some jobs.

  • Well yeah… Who builds the robots and programs them? YOu have to program a robot to program robots.

  • F#ck these robots and the nerds that brought them.

  • Teenager: Ok, but they’ll never have a robot that can split buns and place cheese slices! Job for life!

    Manager: Robot, hold my beer.

  • Coming to a $15 minimum wage area near you.
