right as the chrome post blocks that.
Is this 'concept' or providing (selling) actual production?

0:16 in on the video you see a worker putting the patties on the grill. After they cook on one side the robot turns them over. Then the worker takes the cooked patty and assembles the burger.

So the automated part is just turning the patty over. This is just a novelty. A couple of years ago a machine debuted that cooked and assembled complete burgers and it was discussed here.

Its not just burger flippin' robots that will take over jobs... its working its way all the way up the chain. Recently I went to a large creative industry conference where all of the big software companies show off their latest upgrades. Many of the more recent and upcoming features will increasingly automate and package up various graphic/video/3D assets whereas before this was all done manually. I even remember one of the presenters joking about how in 10 years we'll all be replaced by computers. I'm glad I'm in my 40's because I can totally see this becoming a possibility.

In the future who knows? 95% of us will probably be squabbling over the lowest level table scrap type jobs while the rest is fully automated.

The robot will never complain and probably will be cleaned/maintained by an entry level employee.


Plus the burgers will be cooked the exact same every single time.

Bet they get paid more than minimum wage.

Robots can be bought and sold or put in storage. Plus they don't slack off or get distracted as buddy said, a perfect product every time.

The other jobs will go to contractors who will bid for the work and take care of their own overhead. It's win-win for the entrepreneur. Workers, sharpen your pencils and come up with the low bid. :x

Machines will never be able to reach the levels of bitterness and resentment of a wasted life that a human can:

There is nothing civilized about socialism, and I know of no place worth living which has such a thing.
