A hamburger-making robot that can create 360 perfectly made burgers an hour

A new burger-making robot that can create 360 perfect burgers every hour could threaten thousands of jobs in burger bars around the world.

The robot - known as Burgeon - can serve up a fully-loaded mouthful every 16 seconds.

The team behind the machine say it can do everything a burger-making human can do - only faster!

It grinds the meat and sends it along a conveyor-belt to be grilled. It toasts the buns and sorts the salad and sauce.

If that wasn't enough, it pops the finished burger in a bag!
