Though the topic of more automation and robotics being integrated into the restaurant industry remains a hot button topic, there's no debating its steady rise. Jamba, popular purveyors of blended fruit and vegetables juices and smoothies, is the latest to adopt robotic help.
In the above TikTok clip from @richontech, we can see Jamba by Blended, a self-contained autonomous kiosk that serves up juices and smoothies just like any other Jamba location. The robotics are powered by a combination of hardware and artificial intelligence to take orders and serve them directly to waiting customers using magnetic sliders.
According to the video, there are more than a half dozen Jamba by Blended kiosks operating in university campuses, malls and a Walmart.
