Flippy, the hamburger cooking robot

Caliburger, a  fast casual restaurant, in Pasadena, CA, has hired Flippy, the robot, to cook hamburgers. Flippy needs human help to put the burgers on the grill and to put the toppings on hamburgers. Thus, people and robots work side by side. Customers cannot tell that their burgers were cooked by a robot instead of a human.
