Robotic Fast-Food Restaurant

It's amazing.. it's the year 2009, and we still have people making food!

The recent fiasco involving the dumbasses "tampering" with food at Domino's Pizza could have been completely avoided if human employees at fast food restaurants were replaced with robots. Why aren't we all over this idea?!

Just imagine – a burger could be cooked on demand, to the perfect safe internal temperature (monitored by the cooking robot), assembled quickly, wrapped, and served all by machines! No humans to slow down or contaminate the food. Quality and speed would be virtually identical between every single burger served. Every salad served. Every chicken-whatever served.

Touch screen oder-taking kiosks could completely automate the order taking process, removing as much human error from the equation as possible. (The customer will still be able to screw things up if they're totally incompetent.) But, a human cashier should probably be on duty for people with disabilities, or kids, etc.

Maybe there could even be a scale under the platforms in front of the order kiosks to weigh customers and provide useful messages like "Are you sure you want that much food? You can't seriously blame anything on genetics ever again."

We need snarky robots!
