California-based startup Miso Robotics shows off Flippy, a kitchen robot capable of managing a grill, cooking each burger consistently perfect — the ramifications to human kitchen staff are clear. You can watch this video to see how it tracks the food.
Flippy, which is equipped with Miso's artificial intelligence and computer vision software, has a robotic arm and a hand-like apparatus that closes around a burger and flips the patty. Flippy is packed with cameras and thermal and 3D sensors that give the bot the ability to "see" and track food on the grill and manage the cook time. Once the burger is fully cooked, Flippy removes the burger and places it on a bun. For the time being, Flippy cannot add cheese or toppings to a patty, so the robot will tell the human assistant chef to finish the job. Flippy is also equipped with machine learning technology, which means Flippy will learn new tasks once it masters the burger.
