HAMBURG, NY - The future really is now.

A locally-built robot is coming to the Erie County fair - to give us ketchup.

Staub Precision Machine in Hamburg showed off the machine Tuesday which they call "Molly."

They say it's the first of its kind, and it'll be giving people something to dip their fries into at Jim's Fries at the fair, which starts just three weeks from tomorrow.
