I wouldn't worry about the repercussions of kiosk-style ordering systems.
One of the McDonald's near me switched to this and they kept all of their employees and moved them to the kitchen.
This made ordering nicer and food popped out quicker.
I'm not a fan of McDonald's but I go there every once in a great while for a breakfast sandwich.

Not, "First-Of-Its-Kind" ... I have eaten at one of these Macs a few weeks ago. Your news station is embellishing the truth.


As for the kiosks, they're glass, and awesome. It prints your order on a receipt, you take a number and your receipt to the counter, pay and find a table, they then deliver your meal when it's ready. The wave of the future is here early and you can thank the rise in minimum wages for the incentive to modernize.


Yup, and while people might complain about the loss of jobs, it will just force people to look for other jobs instead, thereby pushing those who can succeed in more disciplined professions to seek them out in the first place.

Burger flipping and cash register work has always been a dead end job for a reason. It's a black hole that occasionally fires people.

You don't want to keep these jobs people. You wanna cook? Go learn to cook real food. You wanna run a register, start looking for places that haven't modernized yet and start learning programming or something because your profession of counting change is coming to a halt.

Seriously people. The jobs aren't going anywhere. There will always be jobs, the definition of what the job entails will be all that changes.

For those getting the shaft in these jobs regards... you were in a dead end job to begin with. Consider this your chance to make a worthwhile change. Sucks at first, i know, but some times you just need to be pushed out of your comfort zone.

Yeah I can see some old people walk in and be like what the f*** is this and try and click with their nails like my grandma does with her smartphone then it doesn't work and she clicks harder and it'll break probably after all the old people get done with them.

"We don't need none those dang adding contraptions"



they have gorilla glass 4 or 5 for phones/tablets now a day? i don't think you can just poke through the glass of these kiosk even with long fingernails-- unless you kick or use a hammer on it. and then get arrested

$0/hr, no benefits, 24/7 work schedule,etc-- no human employee can compete with this


No I mean like, just the general pounding on it constantly after a while will take a toll, they will be replacing the screens frequently. I guess it's cheaper than paying someone though.


Do you own a tablet? Do you own a smart phone? How many times have your tapping broke the screen?

I have used one of these before, unless you are punching them with a fist ...touching something vertical while you are standing vertical takes a lot less pressure than you when you leaning over something and pushing downwards.

In other words, they won't have to replace the screen frequently.

Clean them yes, replace them ...no.


My grandmother has broken her screen by tapping her screen, cause she has long nails, so yes.


So 1....was it a cellphone or a tablet?

Was it in her lap, or was it sitting up on the table.

I even mention that there is a differences in pressure that can be applied by pressing downwards on something than something that is standing upright, which will require more pushing than simply pressing.

I think they meant the whole store layout and not just the kiosks at McDonald stores.. This is the first time for me seeing a store that looks like this. They are rolling out multiple stores so this might not be the only one..


Oh, then disregarded my statement then.

I just assume that the machines will have an approximate 20% uptime from the physical abuse they suffer.


Naw, you'd be surprised at the amount of uptime some machines can handle, We had penny slots with 99.7% uptime even with morons pounding on them all day and night long.

This is pretty neat. Technology as a whole aims to be more effective at what it does, more efficient in resources, and by nature, cheaper to implement.
