Dragon Butt says:

Theres one serious problem with Zume though. The trucks. The idea is novel and fantastic, but you cant really fit one of those box trucks down a crowded residential street. Oh, and theres also the age old issue of customers giving you incorrect addresses, living in apartments, expecting you to deliver to their back yard or to the pool…

I mean, Zume is a great idea, dont get me wrong, but logistically its not that great an improvement.

Let’s hope they don’t only serve the Jewish population.

Philena Farley says:

White Castles has Food Trucks that services festivals, so i dont see why not. It will kerp door dash/grubhub services competitive as well. Already seeing inflation within delivery fees.

Michael Gibson says:

It is disgusting that everything has to be made into a capitalist endeavor. The robots should free us workers from jobs! Also, does anybody even try to NOT USE FOSSIL FUELS? AREN’T WE IN A CLIMATE CRISIS? SO WHY MAKE MORE FOSSIL FUEL DEPENDENT VEHICLES? I GUESS WE DON’T CARE ABOUT THE HEALTH OF THE EARTH. WHAT WE WANT IS BUSINESS PROFITS AND WHATEVER WE CAN CLICK ON AND BUY WITH MONEY.

Stephen Miller says:

How does the robot handle pepperonis. Its hard enough for me.

IGIT rabtrails says:

Farty ass pizza

Jim Mooney says:

Because we are gradually being programmed to accept what sucks as normal. It’s been happening for years but slow enough that people don’t notice the slow degradation of quality.

Mohamed Fall says:

And at the end they will have a robot suck the discarded filth out of their holes and leave a good mark of lipstick for thanks.
What a garbage

Alexandre Alienigena says:

Cool… Sophia do a blowjob for much less coming soon!

Gold silver says:

If a robot costs 1 million what’s the point in it making pizza, a human pizza chef would earn 800,000 on irish min wage in 40 years, let’s all sit at home with no jobs and no money because of robots doing our jobs, lol egg and chicken lol the robots would have nothing to do except use up carbon

Robert Craighead says:

Thanks for the update.

fpstina says:

it’s not a robot pizza maker because it cannot by itself make a 1 pizza…

hello hun says:

A human spreads the dough by hand, sauce, cheese and toppings all without washing their hands after they wiped their ass. This why I rarely eat out or get sick.

Emma l MASTÜRBÃTÈ WATCH VIDEÒ! says:

It probably makes pizza better.

Mark Faine says:

I like the content but I absolutely have the snarky, immature, teenager-who-just – read-howard-zinn attitude. It’s cringy.

Jeffery C says:

ummm

Darryl Wigginton says:

How can you have a patent for making good automatically enroute, far too generic to be enforceable it’s the same when words are owned by copyright etc it’s ridiculous.
