McDonald’s has begun testing its first-ever robot restaurant in Texas, sparking debate and intrigue in equal measure. In Forth Worth, Texas, the branch is fully automated and requires no human contact to order and pick up your favorite meal.
The introvert’s dream gained viral attention online after TikTok and Instagram user foodiemunster shared a video from inside. With 1.2 million views, the video shows how customers can use automated screens to order fast food and collect it via a machine.
“Well there goes millions of jobs,” said one commenter, while another added: “Honestly if they go through with this I’ll just boycott McDonald’s, their food’s mid at best anyway.”
“This will put so many people out of work,” said another commenter. “I’m not for it.”
