For many people, the smell of a pizza fresh from the oven and lovingly crafted is a culinary delight that's hard to beat. But now that hand-crafted pizza has a rival: pizza made by robot.

French startup Ekim wants to speed up the way pizza is made and served. Using a pizzaiolo robot, the company hopes to soon install in an autonomous 24/7 restaurant.

Like real pizzaiolos

The robot’s gestures have been programmed to match those of real-life pizzaiolos, or pizza-makers, and with three arms it can make several pizzas at the same time.

“The robot has three arms, can co-ordinate tasks and make several pizzas at once... We can deliver 120 pizzas per hour,” Ekim CEO Philippe Goldman said.
