Pizza Robot-Made: Cooked On The Road While It Is Being Delivered

This Pizza-Making Robot Is Mesmerizing to Watch and Will Take All Human Jobs (+Video)

Maddy Myers | June 24, 2016

It’s already quite cheap to make pizza. It’s not exactly a restaurant idea that required much further innovation when it comes to cutting costs. But a Silicon Valley start-up called Zume thought that pizza needed to be iterated, so they created a robot that can make pizzas. Way less expensive than paying a human to do it, right?
The pizza-making robot looks incredibly cool to watch, but it sure is depressing when you think about the economic consequences of its existence. Bloomberg‘s feature story about the creators of the pizza-bot reads like a parody of Silicon Valley-isms. Alex Garden, Zume’s co-founder and executive chairman, says “we are going to be the Amazon of food,” and then later: “Just imagine Domino’s without the labor component. You can start to see how incredibly profitable that can be.”

"The real catch: the pizzas aren't cooked on-site. Instead, a Zume driver heats them in a series of ovens built into the delivery truck, while the driver is en route to the first delivery." Source:
