Pizza Making Robots in Silicon Valley 

Pizza Making Robots in Silicon Valley 

Did you imagine that a robot serves you a pizza, then it will be surprising for those who visit Silicon Valley, Zume. In the back kitchen of Mountain View’s newest pizzeria, Marta works tirelessly, she doesn’t complain, and has never asked sick leaves, spreads marinara sauce on uncooked pies and she works for free.

Are you eager to know who this restless worker is? Marta is one of the two robots working at Zume pizza. It is a secretive food delivery stamp trying to make a profitable pizza business with machines. Right now Zume is only feeding people in Mountain View, California.

Zume is one of the growing food-tech firms and seeking to improve restaurant industry with software and robots. They are also planning to create special delivery trucks that will prepare the pizzas during the journey.

“We automate those repetitive tasks, so that we can spend more money on higher quality ingredients,” said Julia Collins, Zume’s CEO and co-founder. “There will always be a model here at Zume where robots and humans work together to create delicious food.”

“We’re trying to automate some of the stations you might find in restaurants,” said co-founder Jay Reppert. “It’s quicker, it’s cheaper, it’s more consistent and it’s this really fun experience to share with people.”

The process of preparing pizza involves some humans, they actually make and spin out the dough, adding cheese and toppings. Inside Zume’s kitchen, a glass box separates the robots from humans. Currently, a robot named Marta adds sauce to the pizza dough within two seconds and then travels on the conveyor belt to humans who add different toppings and cheese.

Suffers of iPhone6 sued over Apple ‘Touch Disease’ malfunction

Touch Disease

A case was filed against Apple earlier back last week in the Northern District of California. Known as Touch Disease, users of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus filed a lawsuit against Apple over the display issue of Apple iPhone. The case tabled by the customers alleges that the company is aware of the existence of the problem and is refusing to fix the affected devices. The users of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus accuses Apple of the fraud.

Rumor: Apple to Eliminate Home Button in 2017 and iPhone 7 Release Date is 16 September

Owners of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus say a defect in the design is the reason behind phone’s unresponsive display screens and making them unusable. According to the reports, users proposed a national wide class-action lawsuit late last week. A flickering Gray bar appears at the top of the touch screens, and users argue Apple is aware of the defect but has refused to fix it.

Apple did not use a metal shield or underfill to safeguard the relevant parts like as on the versions of iPhone 5. It is reported that plaintiffs linked the problem to the absence of the underfill. The complaint filed in federal court in San Jose, California says, “The iPhones are not fit for the purpose of use of smartphones because of the touchscreen defect.” Todd Cleary of California, Thomas Davidson of Pennsylvania, Jun Bai of Delaware are the named plaintiffs in the lawsuit, which accuses Apple of the fraud and violating consumer protection laws of California. They seek unspecified damages.

iFixit was the first to describe online about the Problems with iPhone 6 touchscreens last week and named the issue “Touch Disease.” Apple sells repair parts and has analyzed other products previously. It is reported that this California-based tech giant has sold 166.4 million iPhones and producing net sales of $108.5 billion in the present financial year, summing three-quarters.

The case is Davidson et al. v. Apple Inc, US District Court, Northern District of California, No. 16-04942.
