To help it reach new heights, the company is upgrading its existing robots by adding arms into the mix.It is the latest in a new trend within the food industry — and a number of industries globally — to increasingly depend upon machines rather than human labor.In order to help these machine chefs better do their jobs, Zume is giving them ABB robotic arms, which are capable of pulling pizzas from 800-degree ovens, and placing them on shelves.So efficient are these appendages that they can fill a whole rack in just 4.5 minutes.“We’re going to eliminate boring, repetitive, dangerous jobs, and we’re going to free up people to do things that are higher value,” co-founder Alex Garden, a former Microsoft manager and president of mobile game maker Zynga Studios, told the Associated Press in 2016.Seeing that a stat from Cintas claims that restaurants jobs are responsible for up to 33 percent of occupational burns, Zume really could be saving humans several trips to the hospital.
Dating app Happn, whose “missed connections” type of dating experience connects people who have crossed paths in real life, is fighting back at Tinder.Seemingly inspired by Happn’s location-based features, Tinder recently began piloting something called Tinder Places – a feature that tracks your location to match you with those people who visit your same haunts – like a favorite bar, bookshop, gym, restaurant, and more.Of course Tinder’s move into location-based dating should worry Happn, which had built its entire dating app around the idea of matching up people who could have met in real life, but just missed doing so.Now, Happn is challenging Tinder Places with a new feature of its own.Happn founder, French entrepreneur Didier Rappaport, dismisses the Tinder threat.“We don’t see it as a threat at all but as a good thing,” he tells TechCrunch.

It’s safe to say that CD Projekt Red’s latest game Cyberpunk 2077 has impressed critics at E3 2018.The first-person role-playing game surprised us with its perspective, world, and combat, and we ended up awarding the game our Best in Show prize for the entire event.If you want to play the game on PC with the detail and fidelity on display at E3, however, you’re going to need a pretty powerful rig.CD Projekt Red revealed the PC specifications used during its E3 2018 demonstrations in the Cyberpunk 2077 Discord, and replicating them won’t be cheap.An Intel i7-8700K GPU at 3.7 GHz was used, as was a GTX 1080 Ti GPU — the latter goes for around $700 right now.Also used were two 16GB G.Skill Ripjaws V Series DDR4 RAM cards, which currently go for about $400 on Amazon in a two-pack.

Mexican fans were a bit excited Sunday when their national team beat defending champ Germany 1-0.So excited that apparently the whole country jumped at once, and seismic sensors in Mexico City detected a small earthquake.In a tweet, the Institute of Geologic and Atmospheric Investigations in Mexico noted that at least two sensors registered the quake, and that it was caused artificially, "possibly by massive jumps" when Mexico's Hirving Lozano scored the match's only goal.Some seemed to disbelieve the event, with many asking why no magnitude was given in the tweet, as is usually listed with earthquakes.Institute director Carlos Del Ángel told BuzzFeed News the event was similar to a magnitude 3 earthquake.On its blog, the institute noted that the event would have gone unnoticed by regular people, even though seismic monitors still spotted it.

An extremely rare woolly mammoth bone has been found on a beach in Scotland.The mysterious bone was found on a beach in Loch Ryan in southwest Scotland by Nic Coombey of local economic development and environmental group Solway Firth Partnership.The bone was sent off for scientific analysis by experts from the National Museum of Scotland who say that it is likely part of a woolly mammoth’s femur.The Solway Firth partnership notes that only one other woolly mammoth bone has been recorded in Scotland.However, the bone, which was found in the 1800s, has been lost, as have details about it.“Mammoth species roamed the steppes of North America and Western Europe from about 100,000 and 14,000 years ago,” explained the Solway Firth Partnership, in its statement.
A raccoon scaled a skyscraper in Minnesota, on Tuesday, managing to climb at least 20 storeys on UBS Tower as onlookers snapped photos from outside and within the structure.Per WCCO, the raccoon was “first spotted at the Town Square building, huddled in a nook above the sidewalk,” but when building workers tried to rescue it from a potential fall, it decided to instead climb to nearly the top of the neighbouring 25-story building.Locals have deemed the animal “Spider-Raccoon,” per Minnesota Public Radio News.This poor raccoon apparently got itself stranded on a ledge of the Town Square office building in downtown St. Paul, likely on an errant mission to raid pigeon nests on the skyway over 7th Street.— Tim Nelson (@timnelson_mpr) June 12, 2018According to NPR, firefighters made appearances in the building to see where the raccoon was, and city officials set up cat food-laden traps on the roof to lure the critter to the top where it could be safely retrieved.
