Robot Pizza Company Zume Can Create 372 Pizzas Per Hour Using ‘Dough Bots’ And Deliver It In 4 Minutes

Silicon Valley start-up Zume Pizza has nearly fully automated the process of making fresh, made-to-order pizza by using robots and AI.

A great pizza dough flipper probably can’t turn out one perfectly shaped pizza dough every nine seconds, but California company’s robotic pizza dough press can make a great pie at that whiplash-inducing rate.

“But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.” Daniel 12:4 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: We live in an age that is advancing so fast technologically that we have kinda stopped paying attention to all the changes. After hundred of billions of dollars spent by Amazon, Google and others to advance robot technology, like it or not, we are about to share this planet and our daily lives with bots of all kinds. Siri from Apple got the ball rolling with getting humans to address a machine as a person, Amazon’s Alexa and Microsoft’s Cortana have followed suit. Tesla has been quietly waging revolution with the self-driving car, followed by every other auto manufacturer on Earth. In short, robots have arrived to help us, and soon they will be in charge.

Silicon Valley start-up Zume Pizza has nearly fully automated the process of making fresh, made-to-order pizza — and it’s streamlined the delivery process, too. If you live in Mountain View, Calif., and you order a pizza, it could be at your door as quickly as four minutes later.

While other pizzas — especially the bake-at-home kind you buy at the grocery store — are also made by machine, Zume is noteworthy because it makes fresh, customizable delivery pizza with high-quality ingredients, which it considers to be artisanal even though it is not made by hand. Zume co-founder Julia Collins already has Pepe and Giorgio, two robots, squirting pizza sauce onto the dough, and Marta, another robot, spreading the sauce. Bruno, a robotic arm, lifts the pizza into the oven. The dough is still made by humans. But now that Zume has the doughbot, as they’re calling it, it means that the only part of the pizza assembly process that requires a human touch is the toppings.

Zume delivers made-to-order pizza with robots:

Human beings are great at that step,” Collins said. “When we think of the end-of-arm tools that we would need to pick up a cherry tomato and then a nugget of sausage, it’s hard to find tools that manage that much variety. We don’t have any intention of limiting variety to serve the robots.”

With this technological upgrade, the company can now make and deliver 372 pizzas an hour.

That efficiency comes from dramatically reimagining the way pizza can be delivered. Zume is the first company to reduce “dwell time” — a.k.a the 20 minutes your piping-hot pizza spends sliding around in the back of a Honda Accord. They have custom delivery trucks that can bake en route, so pizza will arrive fresh out of the oven. Through analyzing their customer data and using artificial intelligence, they’re also able to predict which pizzas will be popular in certain neighborhoods during certain times, so the truck can be preloaded and ready to serve.

“We’ve already guessed that you’ve wanted asparagus and ricotta pizza at 12:30,” Collins said.

Zume is now adding scooters to its delivery fleet, which will use the baking trucks as a hub. If someone wants a pizza that isn’t in the truck’s preloaded orders, it can take up to 45 minutes from when the order is placed to when the pizza arrives at your door. But if you order a basic pepperoni pizza and the truck is already circling your neighborhood, it could be at your door as quickly as four minutes later.

The food delivery industry is growing rapidly: Consulting firm McKinsey expects that the market for new delivery will reach more than 20 billion euros — $22.7 billion — by 2025. Other tech companies are working on transforming delivery, as well: Starship Technologies, an Estonian company, is using D.C. sidewalks for its robot delivery pilot program. The rolling robots — they’re almost cute, like WALL-E — deliver food for Postmates, and eventually, the company hopes they will be able to make other courier deliveries for $1 a trip.

For now, Zume Pizza is only available in Silicon Valley.

Collins says the company will expand up to Menlo Park, and down to San Jose, before moving to other cities. They also are considering eventually leasing space in their trucks to other food companies that also want to bake en route. Susan Alban, a former general manager of UberEats, has joined the company to work on its expansion. source

NTEB PROPHECY NEWS PODCAST: Yesterday’s Massive Cell Phone Outage And Obama EMP Civil War Movie ‘Leave The World Behind’ Startling Similarities

Published

SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

Is 2024 the year that will be defined by EMP attacks, another American civil war and the complete takeover of our global society by AI? You just might be surprised.

Ahh, I love the smell of predictive programming in the morning, don’t you? Consider the following. In December of 2023, the Netflix production company Higher Ground, run by Barack and Michelle Obama, released the movie ‘Leave The World Behind’ about the US government deploying an EMP attack on the American people to wipe out our mobile devices. Since then, the Chinese cyber army successfully hacked into the US power grid, and yesterday the majority of cell phone service all across America was down for 13 hours for reasons still left unexplained.

“The LORD bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.” Psalm 33:10 (KJB)

On this episode of the NTEB Prophecy News Podcast, we ask a simple question. Like 2020 before it, is 2024 the year they’ve selected for another major advance of the New World Order? Lee McKnight, associate professor at Syracuse University in New York, said the widespread nature of yesterday’s mobile service outage appears to be ‘a massive Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attack on core Internet infrastructure.’ I guess the question would be who, or whom, launched the attack, and how soon until the next one? Today we connect the dots of this already over-the-top year of 2024 that is not even 2 months old, and show you just how many dominoes are falling on a daily basis. Remember that another new end-of America movie, ‘Civil War’, is queued up and ready for release on April 12th. On top of all this, we have what just may be the most insane presidential election in our history. Now you know why all the tech billionaires are building underground bunkers. Today, all this and much more on the Prophecy News Podcast!

These programs would not be possible without your generous support. Listen to just a few of the recent comments we have gotten:

  • I  thanked God for sending to your website in 2015 , I  live in the South of France near Nice and let me tell you here there isn’t any Bible Believing church at all, the sad reality of France is that is full of Freemasons and Muslims. You came to me at the time I  was going to take my own life because of my job. You’re anointed person and I pray for you, family  and  ministry because you’re a blessing to all of us. May God bless you always. I know I’ll meet you in heaven one day. Lots of Love from your sister in Christ, Paula.
  • “Hi Geoffrey and staff, Today is my one year anniversary that I got saved on your podcast!  I am now a KJB only, I threw away my other two versions I had.  I was shocked to learn of the differences and how the new versions twist the words of God, and dilute the message at best. Thank you for the fabulous bible  education and fire for the Lord.  I donate on your website throughout the year.  Thanks for all that you do.” Donna
  • “The sole purpose of this email to you is to let you know how much we have been blessed by your amazing ministry/website. ‘We’ is my wife and I, in our early forties, 3 kids, professing, churchgoing, bible believing Christians in The Netherlands.  Since two months, I listen to your bible studies on Sunday evening, and since this week also to your prophecy podcast. I listen to them in the archives, because of the 6 hour time difference. The shofar and the blessing at 0:30 into the study never fails to make tears in my eyes. We are praying for you, we are praying for your voice, that it lasts in these incredible busy times for you. Listening to your podcasts, you seem to do it effortlessly, talking, scanning the chatbox for questions, diving into the texts, from Genesis to Revelation and everything in between, I love it when you realize after 1:30h into the study, actually a lot more subjects need to be addressed! Thank you for all your work and effort, you are doing an amazing job. Although it all seems effortlessly, I know it is not…Our faith is strengthened by your work and we are able to testify in a better way to the people around us!” Wouter D. van der Wiel
  • “Wanted to send you encouragement and thank you for all you are doing!! I’ve been reading from this website for about 5 years and I’ve been on this at least 10 times a day. It’s the most honest prophecy website in history. And you have ministered to me greatly. This lockdown has been amazing as God gets us unto himself and smooths out the paths for us. I was reading devotional from Kenneth Copeland and during that time you had really hit That ministries hard. I was not Word Faith but I was feeding off his teaching. During this time I have removed Kenneth Copeland I wanted to thank you for your exposure of his ministry. Holy Spirit is truly the leader of all truths. The bible study on Bill Gates was tremendous. And I had the same check in my spirit as you did. He’s the guy that gonna lead this one world revolution Amazing times we live in. I’m super excited and living in total victory and peace. Once again thank you for the time you put in your reward in heaven will truly be great. Looking forward to this coming week. My prayer tonight is this …Father send Your Son!! DG
  • Thank you oh so much for sound teaching. I am so thankful and blessed for clicking on your channel. I have been on your Facebook page since 2011 and never subscribed to you-tube channel until today. I loved the live recording of singing, what a delight to hear the joy of the Lord in the voices of the congregation. So wonderful to hear the part about Luke 12:36, that has made my eyebrows furrow when I read and therefore I have always steadfast to not leaning on my own understanding. May God continue to bless you, your family friends and loved ones. All Glory be to Jesus, my Saviour Redeemer and King, Amen.” Susan Anderson
  • Loved this teaching! Presented in a clear contextual manner that was easy to follow along. You connected the dots for me that had previously brought so much confusion, namely the 4th seal covenant, the 5th seal tribulation saints, and the 6th seal 2nd Coming of Christ AFTER the wedding of the Body/Bride of Christ IN HEAVEN. Wow, after 41 years since my being born again by the Holy Spirit in to the Body of Christ, I finally have the answers to end the confusion. What joy and peace has flooded my heart! Thank you for this encouraging teaching of the Word.” SB
  • “I am from Sri Lanka and listen to the radio Bible study every week.” Nihal Perera

Nothing thrills my soul like teaching the word of God, it is what the Lord called me to do 29 years ago, and Now The End Begins is the vehicle in which I am able to do it. How exciting it is to be able to teach the Bible to tens of thousands of people per year. Like I told you with the first post of 2020, I have dedicated myself now full-time to NTEB, and it is only through your generous support that such a thing is possible.

The Tech Titans Control Every Aspect Of Our Global Society From Determining Your News Feed To Electing Leaders, Can Anything Stop Them Now?

Published

SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

The tech titans have created a world that they own and that they control, not knowing that they are controlled by Satan to carry all this out

The headlines today have been shocking as for most of the day a majority of cell phone users have been experiencing a total blackout of service for still unexplained reasons. Federal agencies are ‘urgently investigating’ whether the massive cellular outage that plagued Americans on Thursday was a cyberattack. It brings to mind the dystopian thriller produced by Barack Obama for Netflix called ‘Leave The World Behind’ about civil war and EMP attacks from the government. One thing is for sure, our global society is controlled by technology and the tech titans to such a degree that everything has become a conspiracy. No one believes anything anymore, and they shouldn’t.

“And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.” Matthew 24:4 (KJB)

Just about every headline I see is about something I don’t like, don’t want and didn’t vote for. I watch tech titans with messianic delusions trying to create a techno-theocracy where they rule as gods, determining what we’re allowed to consume on a daily basis. They lock us down, infect us with gain-of-function viruses and then mandate we receive injections for the ‘greater good’, gaslighting us about ‘slight’ side effects as the casualties mount in the millions. The next president? It will be whoever they pick, and whoever it is you’ll get the same result. Don’t be surprised if it’s Michelle Obama. Playtime is over, they’re not taking prisoners. History is being recast, and this time the Nazis win.

People like Bill Gates, Elon Musk, George Soros, and all the others are working in harmony with a single goal in mind, even if they themselves aren’t aware of it. They are preparing this world to receive Antichrist. Everything new invention they fund and release brings us closer and closer to the Mark of the Beast System. We all dream of seeing people like Bill Gates being brought to trial to answer for their crimes, but they never will in this life. Why? Luke 22:53, “…but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.”

I wish I had better news for you, but I don’t, we are too far along on the timeline and this sin-cursed lost world has an unbreakable date with the coming Antichrist. So in the meantime, stay in the Book, stand against the world system, help us send out Bibles, and preach deliverance to the captives through the shed blood of Jesus Christ while we wait for the Rapture. That’s the memo.

Shock As Huge Section Of Cell Phone Service Across America Goes Down Leaving People To Ask Is It A Solar Flare Or Possibly EMP Attack?

Published

on

mobile-phone-service-down-iphone-sos-mode-emp-solar-flare
SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

AT&T, Cricket Wireless, FirstNet, Verizon, T-Mobile, US Cellular, Boost Mobile, Consumer Cellular and Straight Talk are all down across the US, leaving customers unable to make calls

Citizens all across America got a shock this morning when their mobile phone service went down and out for the count with 54% of all users surveyed saying their service was strongly affected, and a third saying they have no service at all. As I write this, I am one of those people with no service, the ominous SOS sign where my signal used to be. What’s behind all of this? It will be interesting to hear the explanation when it finally comes, but I have a few ideas.

“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;” Luke 21:25 (KJB)

As we have been telling you for many months, 2024 is a year of continuing momentous change, every bit as much that 2020 was, albeit for different reasons. Whatever the final explanation is on this whole mess, it is highly likely that they pulled the system intentionally. Service outages of this magnitude just don’t ‘happen’, they are planned. EMP, solar flares, there are many things capable of disrupting the system, and as we get closer to the election, be prepared for many more such ‘disruptions’, because they’re coming.

AT&T down with iPhones stuck in SOS mode as people say ‘world is ending’

FROM THE SUN US: Multiple mobile networks including AT&T have gone down across the US with iPhones stuck on SOS mode, leaving panicked customers fearing the ‘end of the world’. Concerned folk across the US are facing major disruptions to their service as several providers have gone down. The outage has caused major disruptions with several police departments warning that people have been unable to call or text 911.

According to Downdetector, AT&T, Cricket Wireless, FirstNet, Verizon, T-Mobile, US Cellular, Boost Mobile, Consumer Cellular and Straight Talk are all down. People have taken to X, formerly Twitter, to voice their concern at the major disruption to US mobile networks.

One user wrote: “Confirmation from around the US on a nationwide cellular network outage. Seems to have affected @ATT first, then later reports from other phones on @TMobile @Verizon and more.

“I can’t imagine this is incompetence or a single node failure. Concerned it could be a #cyberattack.”

Other AT&T customers have reported their iPhones being stuck in ‘SOS’ mode as a result of the outage.

 iPhones enter SOS mode when they lose cellular connection, allowing users to still make SOS calls or texts to emergency services on models from the iPhone 13 onwards.

Many X users have grown suspicious of the mass outage impacting so many major providers at once.

One user wrote: “Got the “sos” mode and thought the world was ending.”

Another said: “Anyone else experiencing these “SOS only” outages on @ATT? Is the world ending?”

A third asked: “OK conspiracy theorists and smart people who know more than me…what is behind the cell carrier outage overnight?”

While a fourth added: “AI bots failing… AT&T down… it’s happening folks.” READ MORE
