BURGER FLIPPING ROBOT STARTS FIRST SHIFT AT CALIFORNIA RESTAURANT

"Flippy" is now on active duty.
Flippy, a burger-flipping robot, has begun work at a restaurant in Pasadena, Los Angeles. It is the first of dozens of locations for the system, which is destined to replace human fast-food workers.

Flippy is being installed in 50 locations.

Each flippy costs $60,000 and costs $12,000 a year to operate. One Flippy can cook 12 burgers. A worker making $15 an hour, 40 hours a week, working 50 weeks a year would cost $31,200 plus benefits (assuming 2 weeks paid vacation).

But Flippy can work two shifts and it never gets sick. For it to be employed in 50 locations, someone must think Flippy is worth it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The entire nature of work, and our relationship with the automation, and AI. which causes Flippy to work successfully, is changing the entire face of work, and employment, as we have known it.

Intelligent kids in school, and their parents, had better get their collective heads around this NOW, because they need to be preparing for jobs which will actually exist further on in the 21st century, rather than those which will not.

Looks like robots will do most of the work here at home,anything they can't do will be shipped overseas. We might as well all die!
