beschra writes: Momentum Machines cofounder Alexandros Vardakostas told Xconomy his "device isn’t meant to make employees more efficient. It’s meant to completely obviate them." Indeed, marketing copy on the company's site reads that their automaton "does everything employees can do, except better."

He seems to be talking out of both sides of his mouth later in the article when he says that employers will be able to expand services and will hire more people but also says that customers will benefit from lower-cost burgers. It seems unlikely that hiring new people will result in lower prices for a machine-made burger.
