“Can I Have the Touchscreen, Please?”
Touchscreens are everywhere in Seoul. They help to make daily activities easier, more interactive, and well, more fun. We’ve mentioned how there’s touchscreen technology in the subways, the media poles in Gangnam and more.
The other day, I went for a casual lunch with a colleague at a sushi restaurant. We had heard the food was superb, but wasn’t expecting to also be in for a nice tech treat.
Once seated, we noticed a screen at our table and wasn’t quite sure what it was for. After asking a waitress, we found out that it was a touchscreen menu. Naturally, we got really excited and furiously began tapping away.
In addition to all the delicious plates that go around conveyer-belt style, you can order specific dishes that you want. The chef prepares it for you and sends it down your way in a colored bowl that’s designated for your table.
Though this particular restaurant is from Japan, we are seeing more and more touchscreen technology around and about Seoul. Tablet devices are also replacing the paper menu, like this one at a cafe.
