DailyDirt: Fast Food, Faster!
from the urls-we-dig-up dept
The fast food industry is always trying to be more efficient about its services. There have been lots of different ways to accomplish quicker fast food, and adding technology to the restaurant recipe sometimes works, but oftentimes doesn’t (eg. uWink Bistros). Here are just a few examples for getting your hamburger orders filled faster.
- Momentum Machines has a hamburger-making robot that can churn out about 360 burgers in an hour, each custom made to order. This hamburger chef can’t be bargained with. It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever… until you are full. [url]
- In 2003, McDonald’s tested some automation equipment for grilling its burgers and cooking its french fries. We covered this story about a decade ago, but we don’t seem to be living in an all-robot McD’s future now. Oh well. [url]
- If you’re in San Francisco, you can get
an In&OutSuper Duper burger delivered to you for just $10, fulfilled by TaskRabbit via a simple web-based order form. It’s not available any time, so there’s no option to get french fries during the Renaissance. [url]
