BurritoBot could soon be a thing

For his thesis project for NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program, Manriquez decided to build something that is both decidedly future-leaning and something that would open up a dialogue about the things he holds dear, namely fabrication technologies and food issues. Burritos, he decided, lend themselves perfectly to his purpose.

Now in prototype, the Burritobot is controlled via an iOS or Ruby-based smartphone app on which the user can customize his or her burrito by selecting which extrudable ingredients he or she wants and using sliders to specify the proper ratio. Then, atop a standardized tortilla, the machine goes to work, using extruders mounted on a moving carousel to deposit the desired ingredients.
