Listen Now: High Tech Help
A restaurant in South Korea is serving up burgers with a side of artificial intelligence.
From order to pick-up, customers at No Brand Burger can now have an experience with no human interaction. Customers enter the restaurant and order what they want on a fully automated kiosk. That order is then relayed to the kitchen where a cooking machine kicks in and prepares the food. Robots then deliver the completed order to the customer.
Now there is one stage of the process where humans are still required. Actual breathing staff members put toppings on the burgers before wrapping them and handing them back over to the delivery bots. But the customers do not have any contact with these people.
Besides being excellent chefs, the robots are also designed to add a little fun to the place. They’re designed to look like popular characters from the movie “Despicable Me”–and customers can take pictures with them.
The owner says the whole place looks more like a toy shop than a restaurant. Now other restaurants are following suit with high-tech help of their own.
