Robot frying potatoes and onion rings

The fries and onion rings served with takeaway are now made using high-tech, thanks to a Southern California company.

Miso Robotics in Pasadena has launched the Flippe 2, which robotically performs the process of frying potatoes, onions and other items.

A robotic arm as large as those in car factories, guided by cameras and artificial intelligence, takes frozen french fries and other foods out of the cooler and dips them in hot oil, then places the ready-to-serve product on a tray.

Miso stated that the Flippi 2 robot can cook several meals with different recipes at once, reducing the need for a catering crew and speeding up the delivery of orders at the windows designated to receive orders during traffic.

"When an order comes through the restaurant system, it automatically records the instructions for Flippe," said Miso CEO Mike Bell.

"It does it faster or more accurately, while providing more confidence and happiness than most people do," he added, noting that Flippi took five years to develop and was recently commercialized.

And the name of the robot belongs to the last previous one bearing the name of Flippe, which specializes in flipping burgers while they are being cooked.

But once Miso's team finished setting up that robot, they realized there was an even more pressing need for a robot to get the job done, especially late at night.

“When we put a bot in a location, the customers who come and place their orders all take pictures and videos and ask a bunch of questions,” he explained.

And then the second time they come, they don't seem to notice it, they take it for granted.”

Miso engineers can watch the Flip 2 robots in action live on a large screen, enabling them to help troubleshoot any problems that may arise.

One day, Bell said, people will walk into a restaurant and look at a robot and say, "Oh my God!

Do you remember the days when people used to do such things?”
