If you think that the entire fast food model cannot get any more efficient, you are wrong. From walk in queues that have expanded to accommodate folks who prefer to purchase their meals from the comfort of their car, Japan has thought up of a spanking new plan that will enable hungry motorists to place their order via their car navigation systems. Yes sir, this will definitely help shave off plenty of waiting time, as you can always decide on what you want for lunch when you are stuck in a traffic jam, slowly making your way to the fast food joint where you will then pick up your meal there.
The system will work through Japan’s traffic news network known as “ITS”, where it currently provides traffic information to drivers. You cannot simply place an order anytime, anywhere though, but will need to pass through designated areas where a menu is sent over to your navigation system, which is where you make your order then. Payment is settled via credit card via the navigation system as well. If it ends up being really popular, I wonder how the kitchen will cope with a greater influx of orders.
