Machines are going to be frying our chicken soon? I can't wait to avoid dealing with rude cashiers that get pissed when you ask them to do their jobs.
It only makes sense. Fast food restaurants focus on speed and efficiency, not necessarily quality. It's basically the same as an automobile assembly line. Which, as we're all aware, is done by machines now anyway. Seems like an obvious transition.
Truth. I see it happening within the next 20 years.
I could see one of the big fastfood chains going totally automated within 10. It's just such a simple transition.
we should do automated Public Works Departments.
we could direct 8 trucks via remote control tp park under a tree down a back street & we wouldnt have to pay the dozen or so county or city employees to watch the wind blow.
It's refreshing to know that this isn't a local phenomenon Apparently it's inherent to the job regardless of location.
the Blue Angels will also probably be in this cut
$50 bet with Rebels10 - Best of 3 Egg Bowls
**the $50 goes to others schools athletics dept**
So you think science is creating a chicken cooking robot right now?
I think it would take a half-decent engineer eight minutes to totally automate the fast food process.
No reason they should be, it would be done for theatrics if they do. The governments way of saying "you should have gave us those tax increases!"
Then it would already be done. I don't see this happening. Maintenance on the machines and paying people to watch over them would be more than the $7 an hour to pay each employee. Fact is payroll isn't a big thing for fast food places.
Not in 10 years it won't be. Menial jobs will be getting replaced sooner rather than later. I'm not saying we're going to wake up one day and all of these jobs will be replaced by robots, but it's coming. Hell, if were talking fastfood, the drink machine in the drive through window is already automated; the machine selects the cup size, ices if, fills it, and lids it.
IDK maybe, sounds weird though. Also sounds like a lot of welfare signups on the way.
There's going to be a "revolution" in a lot of industries, that's for sure. We haven't hit the tipping point yet, but one day it will simply be more cost effective (and more efficient) to use machines instead of people in certain jobs.
But if the machine gets your order wrong...what then?
I am all for it if it means my burger gets the correct toppings. Apparently the half baked dude with the 3rd grade IQ can't tell mayo from mustard
The machine will be WAY less likely to screw up your order than a person would, at least in this case.
I think the key word was "owners" ..
"No onions" is the one that always gets them. Especially at McDonald's, they must threaten the lives of their families if they don't put onions on a burger. It's like they don't even hear you.

I haven't seen one drink machine like that yet
Really? I've seen them at McDonald's. They're right there by the drive thru window.
So y'all know I'm not crazy:
Auto Soda machine
I don't eat McDonalds....that might be why
This may not register with you, 'cause they're not down in Alabama (my family is from up North), but there's a gas station chain up there called Sheetz that has a sub shop attached to it and all of the ordering is done via a touch screen. You pick the bread, fillings, all of it and then it gets made. I see that being the future of fast food.
It's my hangover food.
