I was under the impression that the hamburgers were already machine made, and the patties delivered ready-to-cook, to the franchise fast food joints. No? That's what it looks like, from te customer's side of the counter. So why not a machine that does all of the steps in the same place? The actual cooking of the burger shouldn't be all that hard to do automatically. Fast food places already use automatic machines for things like grilled cheese sandwiches.

I agree Bert, With just a little extra effort, you could put fresh produce and meat in one end of the machine and a fully cooked hamburger could come out of the slot still hot. This approach could improve service and reduce the spread of various malodies introduced to the food by the staff. Just a thought.

No use to me unless you can get it to hold the Beetroot (which appears in every Aussie burger I've ever had unless you tell them not to put it in). I quite like beetroot, just not in burgers....

I agree with both of you... it seems like the healthier, less disease ridden way of making burgers. And the recipe can be tweaked and perfected which would make it consistently good every time. Humans in the fast food business are the weak (and expensive) link. And the upside is, more jobs for engineering students who can perform the maintenance on them :)

This is great for consistency, I get don't like to go to restaurants where the quality depends on the time of day, the person who is making it, or the manager on duty. Also no more spit in food :)

What's the contingency plan for equipment malfunction? Call in off-shift workers, or on-call technician / engineer ?

Aussies seem to like avocado on pizza and pineapple in things too.... :)

While you might not caught a cold from the grillman, I'd worry about the fuzzy stuff growing inside the machine if it can't be cleaned completely. Spatulas and bare metal clean up better than conveyor belts, gears, and chains.

BrainiacV has a point. This thing will be a bear to clean. The next step should be to make it self cleaning.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
