So there I was munching on a so called spicy chicken burger bemoaning the fact that they have to tone down the spice to appeal to the masses when it came to me... A production line for burgers controlled by the consumer.. I pictured it as a high tech affair, jetsons like, a wall is filled with clear plastic tubes containing the raw ground beef, a patty amount is squeezed out into a mixing device, added extras, spices, onions, peppers etc are added to the mixture (extras are selected by the consumer) so i hit the spice button three times for extra spicey, the wheel spins containing the spices and dumps the portion into the mixture, patty is mixed, and shaped before falling onto the cooking mechanism, probe is inserted to determine doneness which is again user selectable, bun type, toms, lettuce etc all selected and created to order. Your specs for your burger could be stored on a smartcard or accessed via a bluetooth phone.

Custom burgers, minimal labor costs (even less than now) due to automation (refill and clean the buckets) and all in a cool burger of the future type environment.... Genius.

       Mongolian BBQ joints allow just this - choose frozen/thawed carcass slices, choices of spices/oils along with veggies. I suggested "McDongolian" as the name of a "Fast Food" spittle-free environment in another idea moments ago - perhaps the two of you plebe bakers could duke it out.

       All that and it still won't do anything for your chicken burger

       Well when roburger was running smoothly it would be time to open a chain of Droid Fried Chicken, similar in concept but whipping up tasty batters to dunk chicken pieces in before cooking...

       I believe this belongs in food: burger restaurant.

       At least in advertising, the Roburger machine should have a large hammer attachment used to comically bash the RoBurglar on the head when he attempts to steal the burgers.

       You know, it's actually possible to make custom burgers in the comfort of your own home. Honest... I've seen it done!

       But making burgers at home doesn't allow you to escape that giant hairball your cat just hacked up on the kitchen floor.   

       I'll get around to that sometime, I swear.
