Buffalo Wild Wings Is Allowing Robots to Take Over the Deep Fryer

It is best to keep Wingy's good side.

Artificial intelligence-enhanced robots have already overtaken the burger flippers of America and theyre coming for the deep fryers at Buffalo Wild Wings next.

As a way to reduce labor costs, Miso Robotics' burger-cooking robot arm Flippy was launched in 2018. Flippy was even tested in Walmart's many kitchens. White Castle then hired its own fleet to operate Flippys in 2020.

The company now plans to move on to the next stage of its global robotics dominance plan, with a new robot called Flippy Wings or Wingy.

The robot's name implies that it uses AI vision to identify food pieces such as chicken wings, and then drops them in a deep frying pan. This is yet another example of robots taking over our jobs.

Miso Robotics claims Wingy could make restaurants safer because it eliminates the risk of human restaurant workers being burned. According to a press release, team members can cook more and spend less time at the deep fryer.

Flippy Wings can fry fresh, frozen, or hand-baked products like a professional, avoiding cross contamination, increasing throughput, and reducing costs. CEO Mike Bell enthusiastically stated this in the statement.

Miso Robotics, despite its odd name, places a lot of trust in the kitchen assistant. We will not see Wingy turn on its human masters, launching scalding oils in their faces, though tech like it could be a threat to food service jobs.
