Robo-waiters: Fast-food chain No Brand Burger has been using robots to handle taking orders, meal preparation and serving customers in its day-to-day operations, Associated Press reported.
Customers use a touchscreen to place their order and pay.
After the order is forwarded to the kitchen, a cooking machine starts preparing the food, heating up burger patties and buns.
Human workers then add toppings and wrap up the meal to be presented to the customer.
A robot server then brings the takeout bag to the customers once ready.
Takeout orders at the chain account to over half of its total sales this month as restaurants could only provide takeout and delivery after 9 p.m. in South Korea following a second wave of coronavirus infections recently. The restriction was lifted earlier this week.
Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community.
Even a $1 contribution goes a long way. Thank you for everyone’s support. We love you all and can’t appreciate you guys enough.
