PASADENA, Calif. — Flippy, the burger-flipping robot that threatens to supplant short-order cooks, has taken its first extended break.

After word got out about a human-replacing robot that could grill as many as 2,000 burgers a day, the Cali Group, which operates the Cali Burger chain says it was swamped with more interest, both from curious diners and potential robot buyers, than it could handle. 

When news coverage about Flippy went viral, the Cali Group said it realized it needed to spend more time on training humans to keep up.
