Can a robot make a better, faster burger?

Momentum Machines says it’s created a new robot that can make about 360 burgers an hour in a 24-square foot area and that they plan to use it in “the first restaurant chain that profitably sells gourmet hamburgers at fast food prices.”

Why robots? Besides efficiency, Momentum Machines says they will offer custom meat grinds for every single customer. “Want a patty with 1/3 pork and 2/3 bison ground after you place your order and “gourmet cooking techniques never before used in a fast food restaurant, giving the patty the perfect char but keeping in all the juices.” Plus it’s more consistent and more sanitary, they add. 

Finally: a geek-run burger joint — where you’ll hopefully be able to wear your Google glasses or Smart Glasses without being attacked.

Now if they just can figure out how to avoid cancer-causing free radicals from grilled food….
