Flying drones to replace waiters? Autonomous restaurant drones transport food from kitchen to table


Restaurant drones

(NaturalNews) Singapore company Infinium Robotics has just announced a new autonomous drone that delivers food to customers' tables at restaurants. The robotic flying drone carries meals and drinks from the kitchen to customers, hovering just beside the table to allow customers to remove their items. The drone then returns to the kitchen to recharge and wait for more "missions."

The Infinium drones are designed to "take away mundane tasks of serving food and drinks," explains company CEO Woon Junyang in Channel Asia News. [1] "This will result in an enhanced dining experience which will eventually lead to increased sales and revenue for the restaurants."

Although the Infinium drones appear to be able to easily handle Singapore-sized meals and beverages, it's not yet clear whether the drones are large enough to carry the mega-sized American meals without crashing. In America, a meal platter for a single person often contains the same quantity of food that an entire family would eat in India or South America.

Robots will increasingly make unskilled labor obsolete

The deployment of restaurant drones is just another sign that the era of robots displacing human workers in unskilled labor jobs is now upon us. The food service industry is ripe for automation via robots, and while flying robots may be the easiest to deploy right now, humanoid robots that flip burgers, unload delivery trucks and prepare food ingredients are arriving over the next decade or so. As these robots sweep into service markets, millions of unskilled human workers who currently hold such jobs will be left unemployed.

This is especially relevant when considering how fast food workers in America are already protesting in the streets for $15 / hour wages. The higher the wages demanded by workers, the more quickly restaurants can justify investments in robots that replace them.

Unlike human workers, restaurant drones and humanoid robots:

• Don't call in sick
• Don't sexually harass coworkers
• Don't steal food
• Don't spit in the food
• Don't get high on breaks
• Don't insult the customers
• Don't slack off and whine about being asked to work
• Don't require Obamacare coverage
• Don't need vacation days
• Don't quit unexpectedly
• Don't divulge company secrets to competitors
• Don't have their arms and necks covered with gang tattoos

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
