This hamburger-flipping robot was so popular when it debuted, it couldn't keep up with demand. Now Flippy is back and even better than before, as USA TODAY's Jefferson Graham shows us in Talking Tech. After a rocky debut in March that only lasted one day, Flippy, the hamburger-flipping robot, is back in action at the Caliburger restaurant here in the heart of this Los Angeles suburb. "Now he moves like a ninja and is more reliable," says David Zito, the CEO of Miso Robotics, which created Flippy. Miso had convinced Caliburger that a $100,000 robot could take the place of short-order cooks, who often quit after just working a few weeks because it's so hot in the kitchen.
