Robots still suck at stuff

Look: I’m sure all the technology that went into this microwaving robot is mind-boggling, but there’s really no denying that the robot still pretty much sucks at microwaving. Don’t get distracted by Sidd’s spiel. Keep your eye on the automaton. Nearly a full minute goes by between the time the robot drops the dish in the microwave and presses the button to start the cook, and there’s an edit in there. That only takes me like five seconds! We can beat the machines at this. I’m the John Henry of microwaving.

Where I think robots could really come in handy is the micro-bake process, especially where instructions are not included on the burrito package. I bet robotic precision would help take some of the guesswork out of that.
