Are fast-food cooks at risk of losing their jobs? Miso Robotics’s Flippy, an AI-enabled short-order cook at CaliBurger, in Pasadena, California, grilled up to 300 burgers an hour. That performance won it a call up to the majors when Dodger Stadium contracted Flippy to cook fried chicken and tater tots. Its mechanical arm comes outfitted with various tools, including a spatula, tongs, and a gripper. It knows when to flip and serve thanks to lasers, a thermal scanner, and camera. Miso claims that Flippy is designed to work with humans, not replace them. Flippy may not need a humanlike hand, but many robots do. Human hands are among the most complex designs in nature. Most robotic hands need many cables and motors to work and are thus expensive—one on the market now has 20 motors. Wired reports that researchers at the University of Pisa and the Italian Institute of Technology have come up with a cheaper device called SoftHand 2 that uses just one cable woven through a number of pulleys in each finger, and needs only two motors. SoftHand 2 may not be as dexterous as costlier machines, but it’s still capable of making quite a few maneuvers. It can, for instance, unscrew a jar. Maybe one day it will open ketchup bottles for Flippy. ©Miso Robotics
