Burger-flipping robot taken offline after one day

Flippy the burger-flipping robot that started work this week in a California restaurant has been forced to take a break because it was too slow.

USA Today reported that the robot was still in place behind the grill at the burger joint but was switched off.

In a statement Miso Robotics, which made Flippy, said it was testing the code that controls the robot to ensure that it can cook quickly enough to fulfil orders at peak times. Prior to starting work, Flippy was said to be capable of cooking up to 2,000 burgers a day.

Cali Burger said it was also working with staff to show them the best way to prepare and place the raw patties and other ingredients in its burgers to ensure Flippy works as fast as possible.

Anthony Lomelino, head of technology at Cali Burger, told USA Today that kitchen staff needed to learn to "choreograph" their movements around the motions of the mobile, spatula-fitted arm which Flippy uses to cook.

Eventually, said the chain, burger-flipping robots will be installed in up to 50 of its restaurants.
