Japanese restaurant replaces waiters with conveyor belt to deliver your food

I love going out to eat at local restaurants. Not only do I have access to a much wider variety of food than I could cook at home, I don’t have to deal with dirtying up and then cleaning the dishes. As you are likely well aware, however, restaurants more often than not have one common complaint: the service stinks.

A Japanese restaurant has come up with a novel approach to the issue – simply get rid of the waiters. The restaurant has installed an elaborate conveyor belt that runs along the side of each table. If you see a dish that you’d like to eat, simply take it off the belt and chow down. In the event you don’t see what you’re after, you can order a custom dish from a touch screen tablet and have it sent out via conveyor belt when ready.

When you’ve finished, simply dispose of each dish into a slot under the conveyer belt. Your bill is calculated based on how many plates you send down the chute.
