Consumers in Newark, New Jersey, in the US can now purchase “contactless burgers” that have been cooked by a robot from an automated kiosk in the Newport Centre shopping mall.
RoboBurger enables users to order their burger on a touchscreen and pay for it using Apple Pay, Google Pay or a physical payment card.
The burger is then cooked by the “fully autonomous robotic burger chef” inside the kiosk and delivered “in about six minutes”.
“This restaurant in miniature cooks restaurant-quality freshly grilled burgers from scratch, and it will soon be heading to airports, malls, colleges, offices, factories and military bases across the country,” RoboBurger says.
