Flippy the burger flipping robot is on a break, already

The artificial intelligence-driven robot is said to 'cook the ideal burger, every time.' Called Flippy, the machine is fitted with a 6-axis robotic arm, which it uses to flip burgers. The bad news? It will be back.

Flippy the burger-flipping robot which started work this week in a California restaurant is now forced to take a break as it is very much slow.

The large robot with robotic arms is still on display at Caliburger, in a "Flippy's Kitchen" stage that lets customers see the robot at work, flipping hamburgers. The Miso Robotics robo-chef was supposed to assist its human counterparts in the kitchen but has been taken offline so it can get some upgrades in order to cook faster. Flippy also alerts its human colleagues when it's time to add the cheese and other ingredients.

Anthony Lomelino, the Chief Technology Officer for Cali Group, was enlisted to get Flippy up and running, and is now training the store manager about the ins and outs of working with robots. "When you're in the back, working with people, you talk to each other".

Flippy won't be late for work, and he won't show up with stains on his uniform. "Choreographing the movements of what you do, when and how you do it".

Eventually Flippy (or Flippies) will be rolled out in up to 50 CaliBurger restaurants, Lomelino said.

But in a statement to the BBC Flippy's creator Miso Robotics said it was testing the robot's code to make sure it could cook quickly enough during peak times.

But those anxious about a robot takeover of food-industry jobs can find comfort in knowing that Flippy still needs a human guide to place the patties on the grill.

Before Flippy begins flipping burgers, a human places raw meat patties on the grill.

USA Today reported that the robot was still in place behind the grill at the burger joint but was switched off. Flippy comes fitted with sensors and camera that allows it to see. The robot was customized for the CaliBurger kitchen and is exclusive to the chain for six months.

'While the biggest companies in the world are focused on using computer vision and artificial intelligence to drive cars and manage the home, Cali Group will facilitate and lead the adoption of these emerging technologies in the restaurant and retail industries, ' said John Miller, Chairman and CEO of Cali Group, at the time of the funding announcement.
