Something good has come of the lunatic push to raise minimum wage. It has spurred technological innovation:
Flippy has mastered the art of cooking the perfect burger and has just started work at CaliBurger, a fast-food chain.
The robotic kitchen assistant, which its makers say can be installed in just five minutes, is the brainchild of Miso Robotics. …
More Flippy robots will be introduced at CaliBurgers next year, with the aim of installing them in 50 of their restaurants worldwide by the end of 2019.
CaliBurger say the benefits include making “food faster, safer and with fewer errors”.
It’s nice to know that those who want it can still have fast food, even after the government mandates that it can no longer be prepared by humans, since it is economically infeasible to pay people $15/hour to flip burgers.
