Zume Robotic Mobile Pizzeria
One Silicon Valley startup — CafeX — is bringing you robot-brewed coffee. The Zume Robotic Mobile Pizzeria aims to do something similar with pizza. Instead of baking your pizza at a fixed location and commissioning a driver to bring it to you, Zume plans on finalizing the baking en route and just four minutes out from your house, guaranteeing that a fresh and crispy pie arrives at your doorstep. While there’s still a lot of human help in baking their pizzas, an ABB-designed robot arm loads the pizza into the oven and an automated slicer takes care of cutting eight perfectly even slices. Give it ten more years plus self-driving cars and Zume might go completely human-less, though there are no official plans for that just yet.
