PASADENA, CA (WHDH) — “Flippy” the burger-flipping robot is back to cooking at a California fast-food chain.
The robot used at CaliBurger underwent some upgrades, allowing it to move like a ninja and making it more reliable, restaurant owner John Miller said.
It now averages more than 300 burgers a day during the lunch rush.
Flippy uses thermal imaging and 3D vision to sense when to flip and when to remove a hamburger.
The restaurant says lines are shorter since the robot’s return.
