We have seen the future, and it sucks.

Fast Food Robot Builds the Perfect Burger

28th November 2012

Read it.

While preparing for the launch of its new restaurant chain, the company doesn’t have to worry about potential chefs because it plans to start the world’s first “smart restaurant” chain. All cooking is done entirely by robots.

The company proudly boasts on its product page: “Our alpha machine replaces all of the hamburger line cooks in a restaurant. It does everything employees can do except better.”

And that’s certainly a better-looking burger than I’ve ever seen come out of a fast-food kitchen.

Single-item menus, zero line cooks and almost no wait times, Momentum Machines proposed restaurant is entirely minimalist and tailored to improve upon the guests’ experiences. Capable of pushing out approximately 360 burgers per hour, the machine takes up only 24 square feet, allowing for more spacious seating areas and hopefully more time spent improving the overall dining experience.

Hey, all you people who depend on flipping burgers for your living — guess what? YOU’RE NOW UNEMPLOYED! Or will be as soon as they get this on the market.

And the higher the Democrats raise the minimum wage and mandate expensive benefits like Obamacare, the sooner fast food companies can financially justify replacing you with a robot and THE SOONER YOU’LL BE UNEMPLOYED! Isn’t that tremendous?

How’s that vote for Obama working out for you now?

    All well and good until the robot malfunctions. (And, having dealt with many robots, that is almost inevitable.)
    I hope the owners have a good team of techs on retainer…

    It’s all good until the robots come for your job.
    And they will.

    I’ll be dead by then, and won’t care.
