Message Subject Owners Flip The Off Switch On The Burger-Flipping Robot
Poster Handle darkwolf007
Post Content
At CaliBurger in Pasadena, Calif., the plug has been temporarily pulled on Flippy, a robot that can grill as many as 2,000 burgers a day.

Though, just after one day on the job, Flippy got a pink slip. Turned out its human helpers couldn't keep up preparing the patties for Flippy. The company says not to despair for the robot. There is still hope for a callback for this automated hamburger helper.

Please verify you're human:
