  • White Castle announced on Tuesday that it plans to test a cooking robot named Flippy in the kitchen of at least one White Castle this fall.

  • Flippy is built by Miso Robotics, and can fry food, flip burgers, and more. It’s already used in stadiums, venues, and restaurants like the Dodger Stadium.

  • White Castle’s vice president, Jamie Richardson, told Business Insider that Flippy won’t replace human employees. Instead, Richardson said that Flippy will free up time for employees to focus on fulfilling delivery orders.

  • To see Flippy in action, watch the video below.
