Restaurant's New Burger-Flipping Robot Only Lasted One Day On The Job

Restaurant's New Burger-Flipping Robot Only Lasted One Day On The Job
2 months ago

 Flippy— the friendly little name given to the robot that will eventually replace food service workers— apparently isn't very good at it's job. After just one day the machine ran into problems and went on and "extend break." Wonder if it gets paid time off for that?

 Caliburger, the chain that plans to install 50 more of these robots nationwide, swears up down and sideways that Flippy isn't going to take jobs away, but instead is there to "aid, not replace" food workers.  

At the cost of $60,000 - $100,000 a piece, we can totally see why the owners of Caliburger would purchase 50 machines to "help" employees, cause that's what corporations do. Right? 

Regardless of what Caliburger says, people are definitely worried about robots taking over jobs. 

But it didn't take long for Flippy to take a break.
