18 High-Tech Restaurant Experiences

From Live Streaming Pizza Screens to Self-Serve Eateries

— December 15, 2015 — Tech
These high-tech restaurant experiences demonstrate how brands can use digital devices to personalize the traditional dining experience. For many people, service is a deciding factor when it comes to eating out. These innovative restaurants demonstrate how service can be tailored to a consumer's exact preferences through the use of digital technology.

One of the simplest ways that brands can use technology to personalize the restaurant experience is at the point of ordering. For many restaurants, giving consumers ordering tablets provides a tactile way for consumers to customize their order. Some restaurants have also sought interactive objects, such as touchscreen tables, as another way of adding a digital element to the ordering process.

These high-tech restaurant experiences ultimately demonstrate that digital devices can be leveraged to customize the dining experience in fun and interactive ways.
