Three former SpaceX engineers have created a robotic restaurant that cooks pizza without human intervention in the shortest possible time.
Now Stellar Pizza is undergoing tests, and will begin full-fledged work in the spring of 2022, Business Insider reports.
The company was founded in May 2019 by three former SpaceX engineers: Benson Tsai, Brian Langone and James Vahavisan. They used to develop advanced battery systems for Elon Musk’s rockets and satellites.
Tsai, the CEO of the startup, hired more than 20 former SpaceX employees, who built a contactless pizza machine. It fits in the back of a truck. Former SpaceX chef Ted Cima attracted consultants and developed a technology for making pizza in such a machine.
The machine rolls out the dough, then adds sauces and toppings and sends the pizza to one of four ovens. It takes no more than 45 seconds to receive an order, and the customer receives the finished pizza in less than 5 minutes.
The company offers pepperoni or supreme pizza. But customers can also choose the ingredients themselves, such as bacon, chicken, olives and onions.
