I'm still waiting to see one of these machines in the real world.  Has anyone seen one yet in person? 

I'd love for there to be one in our work cafeteria!

I have been expecting this type of thing for awhile.  Engineers are driven, from the first shovel on, to find ways to ease/eliminate menial tasks.  I have noticed fastfood places are seeing an increase in more automated devices.

How soon will we see a burger/fry/drink combo packaged to your order all by machine?

Will you order it from your phone and pick it up in 3-5 minutes?

Will this, to a degree, impact the traditional fast food vendors?

Human nature stives in this direction anyway but with the beneficent govt making every effort to increase the cost of employing real people this will accelerate.  IMO.

Just some thoughts.

I've yet to see one, Jim_E. Sounds like it's time to check with the manufacturer on this. Thanks for the reminder.

Of all places to see an update, there was a thread last week on Reddit that had people from around the world talking about the "Let's Pizza" machine.  Apparently there are some machines in the USA (I think they said at an amusement park) but most of the feedback was from Europe.

I'd post a link, but I don't want my monitored web history at work to show that I'm browing Reddit during the day....  :)
