Well, I have seen ordering kiosks like this before, just not a fast food restaurant. There's something like this at Olive Garden where you can order stuff from these at the table. And of course, there's mobile ordering that has been a way to combat long lines that is quite useful. In any case, that's pretty cool and I'm hoping that it becomes more widely used rather than having to walk up to the counter or using the drive through that I generally want to avoid doing. That restaurant in Phoenix just looks amazing.

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.


It was standing upright pretty much like on a kickstand.

I love this idea, please stop making me interact with people to get food..... I would stop going to the grocery store if this was the norm.
