Re: The Future Is Here (BurgerBots)

Well, for me it addresses two pet peeves:

1) Employees who take my order and still mess it up, even though I spoke very clearly when ordering.
2) Unsanitary employees, and yes, every restaurant has at least one. At least here, they do.

How much oversight is there in a minimum wage burger joint?
At least they have managers. That's got to count for something. If a piece of equipment in a restaurant isn't working right, for example if one of the grills isn't heating up, a manager can catch it and shut it down and/or switch to another machine. If one of these burgerbots breaks, what happens then? In a restaurant with no employees, there will be no one to notice a machine that isn't working properly.

Unless these burgerbots are designed to automatically report their own malfunctions, which would definitely help.
I'm sure they have some self-diagnostic and reporting systems. Plus, in order to keep it stocked, they're going to have to be serviced regularly, so there will still be humans in the loop quite frequently.
I actually feel like the human factor would be the weak link. People not keeping the robots as clean or serviced up to date, etc.
