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.

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.

Former IRS executive Lois G. Lerner told a federal court last week that members of her family, including “young children,” face death threats and a real risk of physical harm if her explanation of the tea party targeting scandal becomes public. Ms. Lerner and Holly Paz, her deputy at the IRS, filed documents in court Thursday saying tapes and transcripts of depositions they gave in a court case this year must remain sealed in perpetuity, or else they could spur an enraged public to retaliate. “Whenever Mss.

Doug Jones, the Democrat running for Alabama’s U.S. Senate seat, says he loves to hunt but the Second Amendment has “limitations.” He believes that every right enumerated in the Bill of Rights is limited, and the Second Amendment is no exception.According to the Alabama Political Reporter, Jones described himself as “a Second Amendment guy,” but stressed that some gun control is necessary. He said, “We’ve got limitations on all constitutional amendments in one form or another.” This position is contrary to the clear language of the amendment, which states that the right to keep and bear arms “shall not be

Kathy Griffin is coming unglued. The D-list comedian, who was blasted for releasing a photo of herself holding a bloody severed head that looked like President Trump, posted another bizarre video to her YouTube page on Saturday. In the video, which she called the "State of the Union," she said, "I´m admitting that I lost my mind." The 57-year-old claimed she´s on Interpol’s list and is being shunned by Hollywood. “I just want you guys to know that I am fully in the middle of a blacklist, like I’m in the middle of a Hollywood blacklist. It is real. I’m not booked on any

Malia Obama appears to be settling in just fine at Harvard. On Saturday, former President Obama´s eldest daughter was caught making out with a handsome fellow Crimson fan at the annual Harvard-Yale game. Yale hosted this year´s face off, which saw Harvard students decamping down to New Haven to tailgate at their rival´s campus before the game. The 19-year-old former first daughter, who took a gap year before starting at Harvard this fall, was seen locking lips with a mystery man at the festivities outside of the Yale Bowl. Video shows the moment Malia reached up and put her arms

Charles Manson, the hippie cult leader who became the hypnotic-eyed face of evil across America after orchestrating the gruesome murders of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and six others in Los Angeles during the summer of 1969, died Sunday after nearly a half-century in prison. He was 83. Manson, whose name to this day is synonymous with unspeakable violence and madness, died of natural causes at Kern County hospital, according to a California Department of Corrections statement. TMZ was first to report on the killer´s death. The celebrity-news site reported that Debra Tate, the sister of Sharon, said she received a call

Imagine: even the New York Times’ Ross Douthat now thinks that Bill Clinton should have stepped down over the Monica Lewinsky affair. Douthat’s mea culpa op-ed in this past weekend’s paper, in which he confesses that he and others may have been wrong to dismiss Bill Clinton’s indefensible behavior, will serve as the official political obituary for Clinton, Inc. Hillary Clinton is done, finished, kaput. Dogged by scandals old and new, out of step politically, her excess baggage has morphed into an entire baggage train, dragging her towards political oblivion. While it is refreshing to consider the landscape unadorned by Clintons,

Brooklyn College is kowtowing to cop-hating students by directing officers who need a bathroom break to the broken-down facilities in a building on the far edge of campus. Amid a planned petition drive to ban cops from the taxpayer-funded campus, Donald Wenz, the school’s director of public safety, told the student newspaper The Excelsior that he’s trying to keep New York’s Finest out of sight. While Wenz said all of the school’s restrooms were technically open to cops, the college prefers they stick to those in the isolated West End Building, “rather than walking across either quad to use the

A federal judge on Monday permanently blocked President Trump’s executive order to cut funding from so called “sanctuary cities.” Trump’s order would have removed some federal funds from cities that limit their cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities. U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick rejected the Trump administration’s argument that the measure only applies to a relatively small pool of money. Orrick also said that Trump cannot set fresh conditions on spending that Congress has previously approved. Monday’s ruling came in lawsuits brought by two California counties, Santa Clara and San Francisco.

WASHINGTON — Maine Sen. Susan Collins went further Sunday than most of her Republican colleagues in expressing worry about the sexual assault allegations against President Donald Trump, saying they were one of the reasons she did not vote for him.“Those allegations remain very disturbing,” Collins said in an interview on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.” She added that she did not support Trump in the 2016 campaign in part because of news reports about women accusing him of unwanted touching or kissing.

Over the last few days, I’ve had a number of conversations with both right- and left-leaning friends about the political futures of Al Franken and Roy Moore. Without equating the severity of the alleged offenses (Moore’s are obviously worse), I’ve been struck by the extent to which people across the political spectrum will tolerate misconduct in politicians that they’d never, ever tolerate in their own workplaces. In most functioning corporations, if there’s pictorial evidence that a senior executive groped a woman, then that executive is forced to resign. If there are known, credible allegations that an applicant for a senior

Washington - President Donald Trump says he should have left three UCLA basketball players accused of shoplifting in China in jail. (Snip) Says Trump: "Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal. I should have left them in jail!" Trump later tweeted: "Shoplifting is a very big deal in China, as it should be (5-10 years in jail), but not to father LaVar. Should have gotten his son out during my next trip to China instead. China told them why they were released. Very ungrateful!"
