When Technology Comes to the Dining Table

By now, we have all become familiar with touch screen devices in airports, libraries, and other service facilities. But have you used a small screen at a restaurant table to order food, play games, and pay bills?

Today, upon arriving at the Olive Garden Restaurant in Fremont, California, I saw a cute, little device sitting on every dining table. The touch-screen device called “Ziosk” is the latest gadget that allows customers to study menus, make orders, call servers, pay bills and even play games at the tips of their fingers. I tried it for the first time. It turned out to be simple, convenient—and fun!

The device brings ease and comfort to the patrons while reducing the workload of the servers. It also speeds up the process of ordering and making payments. And best of all, you do not need to be a techie to make full use of it.

When technology comes to the dining table, amazing things happen!

  1. Wow, this is so much more than I expected! Ordering and even paying by a device… it sounds like such a radically different restaurant experience. (And even games?! I think that could be quite fun for the table if some of them are games that you play in groups.)
