Robot Sally

Sally is a green-and-brown robot and new salad bar in one. A brand-new creation from Chowbotics Inc. which occupies approximate the space of a dorm room refrigerator. It uses 21 different ingredients to toss a salad like for exampe romaine lettuce, kale, walnuts, cucumbers, carrots, cherry tomatoes, sundried cranberries, olives, parmesan, seared chicken breast, vinaigrette and honey mustard. The machine weighs in at 350 pounds, making it appropriate for industrial settings like offices, hospitals, schools etc.  Sally does need the help of humans to prep the ingredients that go into the canisters. The big benefit is the fact that the robot uses less time than a human to prepare a meal and it’s done more hygienic. The latest explained: normally you have more hands working your salad and it’s certainly more hygienic than a serve yourself salad bar.

Sally will debut in Silicon Valley at Mama Mia’s, a fast-casual restaurant in Santa Clara, California and at the corporate cafeteria at H-E-B Grocery Co. in Texas. It was launched for the public on April 13 at co-working space Galvanize in San Francisco. Sally’s current list price is $30,000,= there will be an option to lease one for about $500 per month. Chowbotics will start delivering pre-orders of Sally in the third quarter.
