iPad Becomes a Restaurant Menu in China
The iPad is already a huge hit in China, and some trendy restaurants are cashing in on the craze by using the iPad as a visual menu to order your meal from. Is this gimmicky or just another creative use of the iPad?
Other than the fun gadget factor, seeing a picture of the food you’re about to order is a nice idea because we’ve all ordered something that sounded a lot better in the description than what arrived on the plate. These kind of visual menus might be extra appealing to those who don’t speak or read the native language too.
MicGadget reports that iPad menus have allowed the restaurants to reduce their staff numbers and they plan to have one iPad per table in the near future. It’s probably not cost effective, yet at least, but it sure looks fancy. Maybe this is the start of a trend in higher end restaurants?
