Don't expect burger-flipping robots to take over restaurant kitchens anytime soon

Posted on YouTube on 3/9/2017

The video notes that CaliBurger hopes to install Flippy robots in 50 restaurants worldwide.  50 down.  14,999,950 to go.  (McDonald's, on the other hand, operates nearly 37,000 restaurants worldwide.)

Hamburger-making robot company raises $18 million.  (Axios, 6/9/2017)
(Of course, not every restaurant in the world serves burgers.}  Founded in 2009, Momentum Machines is developing food-preparing robots, the first one of which supposedly can prep hundreds of made-to-order hamburgers in an hour ― from raw ingredients to packaging. In other words, it might be the future of fast-food prep work.
