Robot Baristas Could Take Over Starbucks
CNBC claims a new $25,000 robotic barista is able to serve 120 cups of coffee per hour. A startup company called Cafe X hopes their robotic barista will someday replace Starbucks workers. The robot includes a touch screen and smartphone app for customers to place their orders.
Inventor Henry Hu says; “We knew a robot could create an exceptional cup of coffee, but we also wanted it to appear warm and friendly. The baristas to me looked like factory workers. They were moving cups around and pushing buttons, which made me think, ‘I bet we can build a product that automates these boring tasks way more efficiently.'”
