Burger-Flipping Robot Taking Over
In 50 Fast Food Restaurants

CBS Sacramento, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:xcenturion, 9/13/2017 3:17:37 PM

As fast food employees across the U.S. continue to protest for higher wages, a California chain restaurant has decided to hire a new staff member that works for free. The competition for the company’s low-wage workers: a burger-flipping robot named “Flippy.” CaliBurger has announced they will be installing the high-tech replacement in 50 of their locations around the world. “Flippy,” the robotic kitchen assistant, was created by a California startup company called Miso Robotics and is expected to roll out in 2018.

This is what progressivism will get you. A place in the unemployment line, and less summer jobs for students. Well done California!

I can´t wait till the minimum wage is so high that the various DMVs around the nation start using robots intead of morons to staff their offices. Doesn´t the goobernment realize that sooner rather than later, they will make cush goobernment jobs unaffordable?

Beats bringing in more H-2B workers or hiring illegals.

If legal Americans are no-longer cost-effective, then we need to think seriously about apprenticeships and training young workers for jobs not suited to automation. Find a way to make good use of our legal youth and turning them into productive workers. Win, win.

$3,000,000/pop doesn´t exactly sound like "working for free".

Even replacing 3 $36,000/year employees, how long will it take to break even?

I can´t speak for other states, but in ND I have been able to renew vehicle registration online for several years. Takes only a couple of minutes and the new tags arrive in the mail a few days later. Now I understand that routine renewals of drivers licenses will mostly be done online. Have not stood in line at the DMV in several years.

Food preparation, at least for fast food, is an ideal candidate for robots. Think of pizza. Each ingredient precisely measured and placed with exact precision. And do risk of some nasty person spitting in your food. Staffing a fast food place could come down to technical managers to make sure the machines are running properly.

Only recently has low cost robotics incorporating human like dexterity and visual recognition with AI been possible. Tens of millions of lower wage jobs are going to disappear faster than anyone realizes. It’s only a matter of time before a small business can order plug and play robotic workers in a box configurable to specific functions and industries. They are going to be expensive, but that $15/hr employee may be actually costing $30/hr after factoring in low productivity, turnover, worker disruption, tardiness, no shows, theft, law suits, holiday pay, work rules, social security and health insurance. If robotic automation takes the place of two workers on two shifts every day, that’s a $350,000/yr

Think about how many agricultural workers were displaced just by the first wave of automation with tractors and harvesters. This same sort of revolution is coming in the low wage labor intensive industries particularly fast food service, food processing plants and migrant farm work. The unskilled or semi-skilled illegal immigrant work force will be decimated.

An absolutely guaranteed result of the push for $15/hour minimum wage. Perfectly predictable and predicted by anyone with an actual grasp of basic economics. Of course, no leftist or most of the folks earning less than $15/hour who were pushing for this is bright enough to grasp it in advance.

Deer in the headlight looks, all around the central planning fools.

Seems overly complex to this engineer. I could design a machine to do it, not nearly as complex and expensive as a robot. Super simple process, shouldn´t be hard to make a machine to do it automatically, not mimicking human motions, just doing what is needed.

NBC plans to televise any players who refuse to stand for “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Super Bowl, but there may be nothing to show. It appears that NFL players are no longer taking a knee during the national anthem, namely because none of the teams with still-active protesters has qualified for the postseason. By the end of the regular season, only five teams featured at least one player regularly sitting or kneeling on the sidelines for the anthem: the Seattle Seahawks, the San Francisco 49ers, the Miami Dolphins, the New York Giants and the Oakland Raiders. None of those franchises made the

Schumer said Trump’s comments “over and over and over again can be described as nothing but racist and obnoxious. He says he’s not a racist. Well, … I have a challenge for Donald Trump.

Mitt Romney took a swipe at Donald Trump on Monday, condemning the crude comments the president was said to have made about Haiti and African countries -- calling them “inconsistent (with) America’s history and antithetical to American values” with a reference to Martin Luther King, Jr. The poverty of an aspiring immigrant’s nation of origin is as irrelevant as their race,” Romney tweeted. “The sentiment attributed to POTUS is inconsistent w/America’s history and antithetical to American values. May our memory of Dr. King buoy our hope for unity, greatness, & ‘charity for all.’”

This Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the NAACP wants man-made global warming to be seen as a civil rights issue, arguing King’s vision of a society free of racial injustice can’t be achieved without addressing warming. “We see climate change as a civil rights issue,” Jacqueline Patterson, head of the NAACP’s environmental and climate justice program, said in an online radio spot for the Yale Center for Environmental Connection. Environmental activists have been increasingly framing global warming as a matter of “environmental justice,” since “minority and low-income populations are disproportionately affected by global warming,” Patterson told Yale’s online radio Climate

Ever since Donald Trump entered the political arena, his intelligence has been viciously attacked and his supporters have been labeled as moronic deplorables. In a recent Trump tweet, the president responded to the most recent attack by saying he is a stable genius. The mainstream media never bothered checking evidence of Obama´s intelligence before one historian declared him "the smartest man with the highest IQ ever to be elected to the presidency", even though his academic records were sealed. What these attacks do prove is who the real brains are and who are the dummies: Alan Dershowitz may be for real

Police were called to John´s Incredible Pizza Company in Newark´s NewPark Mall on Saturday night after violence erupted. It broke out after a girl missing her phone had approached a group to see if they´d seen it but quickly descended into chaos, with video showing two large groups of people exchanging blows and screaming at each other.

From his perch in the Ohio governor’s mansion, Republican John Kasich is keeping a keen eye on President Trump’s every move and showing a willingness — some say eagerness — to hurl rotten tomatoes toward the leader of his party when he gets upset with the act.He has become a go-to anti-Trump source for the media and often doesn’t even wait for the press to call. Instead, he leaps in to pile on after presidential missteps.While insisting he wants Mr. Trump to succeed, Mr. Kasich has pointedly refused to rule out mounting a primary challenge against the president in 2020.

TRENTON, N.J. — Days before his inauguration as New Jersey’s 56th governor, Phil Murphy had Hollywood on his mind. The 60-year old Democrat had just read a headline about reshoots on “All the Money in the World,” which had been done in a hurry to remove disgraced actor Kevin Spacey from the movie. (Snip) Murphy is ready to end his obscurity. On Tuesday, when he is sworn in, New Jersey will become one of just eight states where Democrats run every branch of government. If Murphy has his way, New Jersey will become a proving ground for every liberal policy

Why would my 22-year-old brother be calling so early on a Saturday morning? I’d ignored the first call. But the second time the phone rang, I picked it up. He was panicking, his voice trembling uncharacteristically: He’d just received the emergency alert warning of a ballistic missile that was heading for Hawaii, where I’m from, and where he and my family still live. “THIS IS NOT A DRILL,” the alert read. My brother was alone, and had no idea what to do or where to go. And he wouldn’t have had much time to figure out a game plan—some estimates
