Illinois Pizza Lovers: Ready to Have One Made and Served by a Robot?
A former SpaceX engineer has spent the last two years building something no one asked for, a bot that will likely ruin everything good about pizza.
Pizza is one of the greatest foods in the world!
If you agree, please read on. If you disagree, you and I will not be going out for pizza together. Certainly not one made by a robot.
What's about to take place in California could likely become 'a thing' across the country, but we have to protect our borders and not let it into Illinois, home to the BEST PIZZA.
Benson Tsai was once a SpaceX (Elon Musk's space company) engineer, now he's playing the role of 'Dr. Evil', the scientist ruining pizza AND jobs.
Stellar Pizza... may be anything but.
In the spring of 2022, Stellar Pizza will make its debut in California.
"The robotic pizza joint will only use cutting-edge technology and advanced robotics to create an automated, touch-less machine that bakes pizza from scratch in under five minutes."
Why do we need a pizza made in under 5 minutes?
Stellar Pizza's robots start with a freshly prepared ball of raw pizza dough, then they press and shape it into a round pizza crust. Next, sauce and fresh toppings are added. Lastly, the raw pizza goes into a high-temperature custom-designed oven for a 5-minute bake.
Illinois Has the Best Deep Dish Pizza in the World
You just can't rush a good thing. How many times does that need to proven? A pizza made in 5 minutes is a frozen pizza , let's keep it that way.
Was something wrong with the pizza experience prior to this? I don't want my pizza made that fast. I sure hope they aren't wasting more time and money trying to find a fast way to make a deep-dish pizza. Those big beauties need time, not computer chips and robotics.
Often I feel like I can taste that 'extra something' in food that was prepared with passion. I'm pretty sure I didn't have the only mother who served a meal that was "made with love."
I don't think I'm ready for a Robo-Pizza. There's no heart.
Additionally, do we really need to use this kind of technological brilliance to keep making jobs for humans disappear?
