The world's first flying waiter

by Team YO! Sushi in News on 12/06/2013 at 16:36

Famed for being the first Sushi chain in the UK to deliver food to customers on a conveyor belt, we have now gone one-step further with the introduction of the world's first flying tray to deliver the YO! Burger to YO! Sushi lovers.

The 'iTray', which is now being trialled at YO! Sushi Soho with a view to rolling it out across the UK next year, is a high-tech flying platter custom built using the most advanced RC Drone quadicopter technology and is remote controlled through an on-board Wi-Fi system and iPad software. 

The gadget is made from a light-weight carbon fibre frame and consists of four propellers making it incredibly nippy. Two built-in HD cameras allow YO! Sushi kitchen staff to check that the new burger range is delivered through a real time video broadcast viewable on an iPad screen. 

Pretty cool, huh?
