We've all seen Hollywood sci-fi movies in which robots do all the work, but what if robots were employed in real life? This will lead to catastrophe as millions of people will be unemployed. This imagination has become real in the United States. 

Prominent fast food chain McDonald’s has introduced its first automated restaurant in Texas, where robots do all the work and the only human present there is you. 

This automated outlet has been opened in White Settlement, a suburb of Fort Worth, Texas. A video clip of this outlet with no human employee has gone viral on the internet like wildfire. In the clip, empty counter with a big screen where you can place your order. 

After placing the order, robots bring the food. The outlet also offers a drive-through facility, you just have to order ahead online, and an automated machine appears with the ordered food and delivers it from a window.

As of now, McDonald’s is testing the concept at only this location, but if it gets a positive response, the famous fast food chain can think about expanding outlets. According to the fast food company, the outlet is designed for people who live on the go. Customers receive their orders from a conveyor belt and there’s an employee present who answers their questions.

The clip was shared by a Twitter user who goes by the name @nowthis with caption, “A first-of-its-kind McDonald’s has opened in White Settlement, TX, a suburb of Ft. Worth. The location is almost entirely automated, with machines handling every aspect of the consumer experience — including the drive-thru window.”

Since being shared, the clip has garnered over 83,100 views. Several users filled the comment section with their thoughts, with most expressing concerns about robots taking away jobs.

 “Anyone want to write this dystopian novel? Anyone want to guess who is working the grill?” commented a user.

“No thanks. I’m doing nothing to promote robots taking away jobs,” said another.

“Anything to get out of paying workers a living wage, eh McDonald’s?” another person wrote.
