Over at psfk, there’s a piece about a San Francisco-based robotics startup, Momentum Machines that aims to revolutionize the fast food industry with an automated burger machine. They say they don’t have to worry about hiring cooks because they plan to start the world’s first “smart restaurant” chain where all cooking is done entirely by robots. The company proudly boasts on its product page: “Our alpha machine replaces all of the hamburger line cooks in a restaurant. It does everything employees can do except better.” Wow, that’s fucking great, finally someone figured out how to get rid of the last minimum wage jobs in America. They’d better plan on accepting food stamps at their “smart restaurant,” otherwise the notorious roving gangs of SF homeless will set their fucking Rottweiler's on them!
I eat robots for fucking breakfast!
