Flippy's Friends: Meet the Happy Tree Friends and Their Crazy Antics


Flippy: The Robot That Can Cook Burgers and Fries




Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a robot cook your food? Well, you might not have to imagine for much longer, because there is a robot that can do just that. Meet Flippy, the burger-flipping robot that is changing the face of fast food as we know it.


What is Flippy?




Flippy is a robotic kitchen assistant that can perform simple tasks like working a burger grill or a fry station. It was developed by Miso Robotics, a California-based startup that aims to transform the restaurant industry with robotics and intelligent automation.

Flippy was first introduced in 2017 at CaliBurger, a fast food chain that also invested in Miso Robotics. Since then, Flippy has been tested and deployed in various locations, including Dodger Stadium, Buffalo Wild Wings, and White Castle.


Flippy 2: The Latest Version of the Robot




In November 2021, Miso Robotics announced a new version of Flippy, called Flippy 2. This version is smaller, faster, and smarter than the original one. It can also fry nearly any type of food, thanks to its new features:



  • An Automatic Dispenser that can handle high-volume foods like French fries. It has a single or dual hopper configuration with refrigerated or frozen storage.



  • AutoBins that can recognize and transfer different types of foods to the fryer. They can hold up to three items at a time.



  • A Robot-on-a-Rail system that allows Flippy 2 to move along a track and access multiple fryers.



How Flippy Works in the Kitchen




Flippy uses computer vision and machine learning to identify, flip, and cook burgers and fries. It also uses thermal imaging to detect when the food is undercooked or overcooked. It can adjust its cooking time and temperature according to the type and quantity of food.


Flippy works as a kitchen assistant, not a replacement for human workers. It still needs human supervision and intervention for tasks like seasoning, dressing, plating, and serving. It also needs regular cleaning and maintenance.


Why Flippy?




The Benefits of Flippy for Restaurants and Customers




Flippy offers several benefits for restaurants and customers who use it. Some of these benefits are:



  • Consistency: Flippy can cook food with improved efficiency and accuracy, ensuring more consistent and perfectly-cooked meals every time.



  • Speed: Flippy can cook food faster than human workers, increasing the throughput and productivity of the kitchen.



  • Safety: Flippy can prevent the spread of food-borne pathogens by using thermal imaging to detect undercooked food. It can also reduce human exposure to hot oil and grease, lowering the risk of burns and injuries.



  • Hygiene: Flippy can limit human contact with food, reducing the chances of contamination and cross-contamination.



  • Innovation: Flippy can introduce new menu items and recipes that are optimized for frying. It can also attract more customers who are curious about the technology.

  • Cost: Flippy is not cheap to buy or operate. It costs about $30,000 to purchase and $2,000 per month to operate. It also requires a lot of electricity and internet connectivity to function properly.



  • Skills: Flippy can reduce the need for human workers who have skills in cooking and frying. It can also create a gap between workers who have skills in robotics and automation and those who do not.



  • Jobs: Flippy can potentially replace human workers who perform simple and repetitive tasks in the kitchen. It can also create more competition and pressure for workers who want to keep their jobs or find new ones.



  • Ethics: Flippy can raise ethical questions about the role and value of human labor in the food industry. It can also challenge the social and cultural norms and expectations of customers and workers who interact with it.
