Tacos are the best. Broken taco shells from the box (if I am too lazy to fry up some fresh ones) are not the best. Taco shells must be handled with care, from beginning to end.

This machine, one of many interesting food production machines from a California company called Heat and Control, toasts tortillas, fries them, folds them and pushes them down a conveyor belt with gentle robotic precision. Finally, humans nudge them together into a neat stack for secure packaging.
