These crazy robots serve you at this Korean BBQ restaurant
If you love Korean barbecue and you love robots Gen Korean BBQ, this is the place to be.
I'm hanging out with David.
And David, come on, look at all this.
I've heard so much about what you guys do.
I guess I'm looking at robots.
Is that right?
Yeah, so this is our new robotic system.
Big thing about this system, it's supposed to help the servers.
You're gonna be ordering with them just like in any of our other restaurants.
But then the thing is is that Where you can [UNKNOWN] as a tool to help bring out the food so the server does not have to be running back and forth and they can just spend more time.
Alright, so let's just say the food is ready and we wanna get it sent out.
How do we actually go about doing this?
It's actually very very simple.
All we have to do is, once the food is set, on each tablet Are specified tables of where each robot goes to.
And all you have to do is tap on there.
So if you could just tap table 52.
Well, let's see what we got here.
This is the Hawaiian bacon here.
With its own dipping sauce.
Well, I want some of the shrimp shrimp.
So just throw it on.
Make sure it's within range?
So we got some shrimp, the Hawaiian steak, and we have a teriyaki portabella.
You know me.
So we just go here, hit 52?
Just tap 52.
So once you tap there, all you have to do is wait a few seconds-
And it'll be on its way.
Give it a little love tap.
All right, let's go check it out, we'll see where it ends up, okay?
All right, so, obviously we got this awesome spread here.
Can you talk about, while we're chilling here, I mean, how long does it roughly take for the actual robot to get here?
This one is one of the shorter tracks, so this one should only take about 30 seconds, 30, 40 seconds.
Yeah so you can actually hear it, it's on its way right now, coming out from the kitchen.
It's right, that thing.
Yeah, right there.
Man, this is cool.
It's like I can see it right there.
So what we just grab the stuff off of it?
All right, so we got some Hawaiian steak here, man.
That's the teriyaki pork chop.
That's that Hawaiian bacon you're talking about.
Here's my shrimp in its dipping sauce.
That's actually the dipping sauce from Hawaii too.
Well, I'm just going to eat on everything.
So can you also talk about, you know, we saw.
How we send it out, but what is some of the technology involved?
I know you're using tablets over there.
How does it actually know exactly where to stop and start?
And it just left!
So, we actually have timers that are set up so it's either by timer, or there's actually a button on that, a little green button.
Once you press that, it'll be on its way back.
But, in terms of how it knows where to go, everything is pre-mapped.
So each robot Goes on a different track and then know it's okay.
I need to walk three feet to the left.
Walk one feet here, and then it'll stop right at the table.
And so everything is preprogrammed.
So once you press on table it should stop right in the window, and then you can just grab your food.
Thanks so much for your time David.
We appreciate it.
And we gonna grub.
All right David, thanks so much for this meal.
Of course, thanks for hanging out.
You know what, it's like you have all the cool technology here but obviously it comes down to the food, right?
You gotta deliver on the goods there.
Of course, that's the centerpiece of the experience.
So, I'm just gonna wrap it up with my Kalbi here.
[LAUGH] I'm good.
You can do it, you can do it.
He did it, he actually did it.
He actually did it.
