Robo-Pie

Delivered in thirty bytes or less?
Here’s how it works: When a customer places an order, a robot sauces a pre-formed uncooked pie, then sends it down a conveyor belt to a human, who adds the toppings. The pizza is then loaded into one of those 56 ovens on a special delivery truck, where it will bake en route to its destination.

“We’re starting with pizza, but the implications for BOTW [baked on the way] technology extends to the entire food-delivery industry,” Garden said in a statement. “By eliminating dwell-time, we can make pizza with locally sourced, chemical-free ingredients, so that customers don’t have to compromise quality for convenience.”

The pizzas range from $15 to $18. And the toppings go beyond your average cheese and pepperoni: On something called a Veggie Jackson pizza, you’ll find mozzarella, young goat gouda, baby spinach, yellow squash, green squash, Kalamata olives, roasted red peppers, red onions, gremolata and tomato sauce. There’s also a gluten-free option for some of the pies.
Don't forget to tip your robot...
