Watch out pizza world: this pizza robot could shake things up.

Seattle startup Picnic announced Tuesday that it has a developed a unit that can make 300 12-inch pizzas per hour and 180 18-inch pizzas per hour.

While the pizzabot does its share of the work, dough preparation, sauce making and baking are all done by non-robots, aka humans, according to GeekWire.

Once an order for pizza is placed, it enters a digital queue and the robot starts making the pie as soon as the dough is put in place, GeekWire explained. The system sends data back to Picnic via the internet in order for the robot to learn from its mistakes.

Picnic has launched the A.I. pizza maker at Centerplate, a caterer in the Seattle Mariners’ T-Mobile Park baseball stadium, and at a restaurant in Redmond, Wash., per GeekWire.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
