The iTray

Waitering goes high-tech. Somehow I don't think this will be widely adopted.

I don't think it will fly either. Those girls were pretty trusting wearing skirts with that thing hovering below table level. 🐛

That was my second thought, KDP. The first one was, that's going to make a hell of a mess when something goes wrong. The third one was to wonder how the plate gets from the tray to the table.

Some people sure are easy to 'amaze'.

We have one McDonald's in town near us where you can order ahead over the "net" (must be pre-paid with a registered account) and pick it up at a special drive up window. All they ask is the generated online 5 digit PIN you are emailed or texted for the order (it changes every time) before they will hand it to you. No waiting.

It's not a corporate thing. The store runs it themselves. I wish more would do this kind of thing.

Oh boy, there goes a bunch more jobs!

@Patty: Na.... It's going to take a few thousand Chinese to build the things, another 7 or 8 hundred Indians to translate the instructions, 2 to 3 hundred Mexicans to make replacement propellers, and 20 to 30 MIT guys to fly them.
