Robot Making Pizza Debuts

LAS VEGAS (AP) – Among the many robots at the CES gadget show in Las Vegas this week is one busily making pizzas for hungry crowds. The robot from Picnic resembles an assembly line and can churn out 300 12-inch pies in an hour. Humans are still needed, though. A worker slides a frozen crust on the conveyor belt. As the crust goes down the line, sauce, cheese, sausage and other toppings fall from above and onto the crust. A worker then needs to put the pie in the oven, take it out and slice it up. The annual CES show runs through Friday.
