Walmart is testing a new robot called “Flippy.” Flippy is the un-personification of truth in labeling: It flips hamburgers.  There are about 25,000 fast-food hamburger restaurants in the US.  If Flippy can replace an average of two employees at each restaurant, then 50,000 American jobs will eventually disappear.

I doubt that MacDonald’s and Burger King are worried about that.
