AI robots have reached the world of fast food. CaliBurger, a West Coast burger chain, has invested in a burger-flipping robot named “Flippy.”

Flippy’s creator, Miso Robotics, says they’re not intending for Flippy to take away jobs from humans, but rather, that it will act as a “kitchen assistant,” taking over when a human has more important tasks. It does all of the repetitive and monotonous work for you.

The robot is designed to learn new menu recipes, and is equipped with thermal sensors, 3D sensors, cameras, and a burger-shaped claw.
