Pizzeria Uses Robot to Prepare Pies, Bakes Them on Delivery Truck

Her name is Marta. She's the next generation in pizza chefs. Marta, who is a robot, assembles pizzas, then gives them to another robot named Bruno. Bruno loads the pizzas into an oven where they bake partially--but not all of the way.

The pizzas are then loaded onto delivery trucks. Each truck has 56 ovens. When a computer calculates that the truck is 3 minutes and 15 seconds away from the destination, it turns the oven on.

So when the customer gets the pizza, it's extremely fresh because it just came out of the oven.

This is the business model for Zume, a new startup located 2 minutes away from Google's headquaters in Mountain View, California. Bloomberg News (auto-start) investigated what may the the future of food:

"We are going to be the Amazon of food," said Zume's co-founder and executive chairman, Alex Garden. […]

Garden is confident it won't be long before he's competing with the major pizza chains. "Just imagine Domino's without the labor component," said Garden. "You can start to see how incredibly profitable that can be."
