Used for the first time in Pasadena this week, after just a few hours of work, the robot took a break! Do not believe that he rebelled and slammed the door in the face of his employer, far from it.

A spokesman for the company reports that ” the company must perform tests to ensure that enough orders can be made .” Finished the holidays for Flippy, it will be in service again next week between 11h and 14h each day. The burger chain should install 50 Flippy in its restaurants.
