We Have The Burrito Technology: Burritob0t

Rescuing the world from hunger, one burrito at a time

Rescuing the world from hunger, one burrito at a time

There is an actual robot designed and built to print burritos using MakerBot 3D printer technology.  Foodstuffs extruded by MakerBot frostrutders onto a tortilla warmed by a MakerBot heated built platform, a burrito could be assembled before your eyes by a robot, layer by delicious salty layer.  While a Burritob0t would almost certainly be slower than a seasoned1 Taco Bell employee, it would also have 1000% more DIY robotic goodness than anything available anywhere.2

Kidding aside, I’m assured by reliable sources this is not just a photo-mockup of what a burrito assembling robot would look like.  The creator Marko Manriquez has built a real robot capable of assembling parts of a burrito using some off-the-shelf open source parts and proven open source technology.

That’s one of the amazing things about open source hardware and software – you never know what someone will be able to create based on what you’ve contributed.  Who could have suspected three years ago the guts of a Cupcake CNC could have been put to use for an automated burrito making robot?

Hat tip to Hack-a-Day

  1. Pun intended []
  2. And, again, I’m sorry for helping propagate the whole TacoCopter thing. []
