High Tech Lunch

Thursday I went to lunch with a co-worker and it was by far the most high tech lunch I've ever had in my life. We were in a Sushi place where the chefs made a large assortment of options that fly by on a conveyor belt. The Japanese call this sort of sushi restaurant Kaiten Sushi. You take what you would like to eat off the conveyor belt and the pricing is based on the color of the plate. When it came time to get our bill the waiter waved a wand with an electronic eye over the plates we had eaten from, it beeped and said how much we needed to pay. I have no idea how it worked but it was pretty cool.

Haha had to laugh. Me and mark hit up a place like that in Singapore. What's worst is when your waiting for something to come around, and the jackass in the table before you grabs it!

Hi Ryan! Used to be in San Francisco at a DimSum restaurant, food was delivered on different size plates that were tallied at the end of the meal by the size of the plate. I've seen the same thing in China too.
