The McFredrick Bot

Fredrick's Napkin Drawing

At the pick hours in burgers shops, customers spend most of their valuable time waiting for their orders because the person(s) at the counter got overwhelmed by the service.

Thus, this idea of customer hamburger machine came as outstanding to reduce the amount of waiting time. The robot will, with great precision and fast, pick hamburger ingredients from four different positions and make finished burger ready to pass on to the customer. For our demonstration purpose we will blocks or small plates representing burger ingredients.
