Introducing Burritob0t, a Burrito-Making Robot


Perhaps you’ve heard about the Jetsons-ish emerging technology that is 3-D printing. Well, Marko Manriquez, an interaction designer at NYU, has created a robot that builds burritos using that technology. “There’s no reason we can’t have our burritos downloaded, printed, and into our bellies,” he says in a video that you can see below. The one drawback? The resulting grub is rather paste-like in consistency, and salsa and guac (which can’t be easily extruded through a syringe) have to be added manually. Baby steps.
