Traditionally speaking, when you walk into a sit down restaurant you’re seated, a waiter takes your order, and food is delivered to the table. About some 10 years ago – maybe more – sushi restaurants began to pop up – probably first in Japan – that delivered small plates of food by way of conveyor belt. I’ve also seen miniature boats floating on a moat of water, but the belt system seems to be the most popular. However, to take part in this rather novel experience you need to be seated accordingly and since the food isn’t made to order, it’s a questionable practice that I don’t suggest doing more than once.
Now, furthering eschewing tradition, is the quadricopter food runner. Yo! Sushi – the name is almost enough to explain the absurdity at hand – is currently testing, or attempting, to deliver food to customers by using a quadricopter that is powerful enough to carry a tray of eats to customers. Needless to say it’s an impractical delivery system, and from what I can tell designed to garner press, which seems to be working (case in point). But, that all being said, at least each item won’t be left spinning around on a motorized belt it’s made for a specific table.
So what’s Yo! Sushi’s next move? Quadricopter delivery? Obvs.
PS – I think this is a joke, but you be the judge.
