The future is now..
"The iPad2 ordering system
The days of yelling your order to the barperson just for them mishear and bring you an avocado instead of an affogato are thankfully coming to an end with some tech-savvy establishments installing tablet ordering systems at tables.
Japanese tapas and cocktail bar, Little Red Pocket, invited Marketing along to the debut of its self-developed iPad2 ordering system, which lets patrons browse an interactive menu of the bar’s food and drink offerings. Once you’ve decided what to order, you can customise it right down to the number of ice cubes in your Lychee Long Time. Payment is then made through a credit card swiper attached to the iPad, and you can sit back until it arrives.
But the fun doesn’t stop there, with access to Facebook included, and plans underway to add extra functions such as social gaming and music voting systems.”
