Taco Bell's burrito-ordering bot is your new soulmate
It was bound to happen. If pizza was going all 21st-century with Amazon Echo integration and Domino’s drone delivery, tacos would have to follow suit.

Enter the TacoBot, Taco Bell’s take on blending modern tech with fast food. Teaming up with the professional chatroom service Slack, the Bell has made an AI capable of taking your order from the comfort of your keyboard.

TacoBot can take your order, suggest modifications, change out ingredients, review your order, and even engage in small talk. Taco Bell claims its AI can chat about not just the menu, but also how its feeling and its favorite movies.

TacoBot is in private beta at the moment, but is taking up a waitlist for any companies interested in cutting the automated cashier some Slack.

While you wait, tacos’ brother from across the pond – pizza – can still be ordered a number or amusingly lazy ways, such as via tweet, emojis, or an assuredly outdated Kinect app.
