It is said that “necessity is the mother of invention,” and no doubt a $15 dollar minimum wage for slinging a hamburger on a grill is perhaps the true motivation behind a robot powered burger making machine.

And the first prototype to make its debut is appropriately located in “la la land”, ultra-progressive San Francisco, a city that pushed the minimum wage debate and won, and now they’re reaping their just reward.

The hamburger robot once fully implemented can produce 400 made-to-order hamburgers an hour, and can garnish a hamburger with all the trimmings, slice toppings, grill, assemble and even bag the burger without any humans touching the process.

The company’s co-founder, Alexandros Vardakostas, said the hamburger robot would make employees more “efficient”, adding; “It’s meant to completely obviate them.”

However there’s no denying that the hefty progressive and politically motivated minimum wage hike by political hacks with little interest or actual business knowledge of how this regressive addition would impact the fast food industry and the thousands of small restaurants around the nation.

Especially within the fast food industry, where profit margins are traditionally low, and of course the shelf-life of food and the spoilage involved.

Here's a diagram of how the machine operates:

The robot was first introduced in 2012, however delayed until the company could change the building permit and convert the retail space into a restaurant, and it did so in January.

There’s little doubt that robotics was the wave of the future within the fast food industry, however the political firestorm created by the progressive establishment pushing for a minimum wage hike of $15 an hour actually accelerated the process…in short “necessity is the mother of invention.”
