A recent video from Channel News Asia in Singapore showed a new idea being tested in the Southeast Asian nation – Drone waiters.
Bar/restaurant Timbre @ The Substation used Infinium-Serve robots to transport orange juice and dishes such as smoked salmon from the kitchen to the dining area, where the loud whir from the drones’ propellers were drowned out by music during the demonstration according to the news stations website.
While customers seemed interested by the novelty, many comments on the news channels Facebook page have been negative, with many wondering about waiting times and just the weirdness of it all.
Is this possibly the new wave of the future in the food and beverage industry? Would you like to have drones hovering above you filled with drink and food? As we know, Korea’s not shy when embracing technology and who knows whether one day this may be the future of food service as we know it.
Check out the video and see what you think – Good idea or just plain ridiculous?
