World's first robot-made burger debuts in San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO -- Not even fast food work is immune to automation.

On Wednesday, machines started cranking out the world's first robot-made hamburger.

Culinary robotics company Creator held a soft-launch for its very first burger joint in San Francisco.

Robots cook, slice, and assemble burgers in five minutes.

Each burger costs $6.

Creator sent a video of the 20-computers, 350 sensors and 50 actuators in the restaurant -- or factory as some have called it.

Chefs from Chez Panisse and Momofuku worked on the project to make sure the burger is tasty.
