Robots are coming: Automated food trucks to invade L.A.

Further evidence that human foodservice workers may soon be extinct has been revealed with the announcement Ono Food Co. will unleash its robot-powered food trucks on Los Angeles soon.

The trucks serve up $6 smoothies, among other delights, with non-humans staffing the blenders and serving area.

Ono says the trucks are an ideal way to offer fresh, healthy food virtually anywhere with little hassle. Especially along California’s crowded beaches where every bit of sand is a premium.
