A sushi restaurant in England has adopted the use of trays that hover through the air to deliver food to customers.

The remote-controlled, flying trays known as the iTrays were introduced by YO! Sushi, a popular Japanese restaurant on Poland Street in London.

The restaurants’ servers control the trays from roughly twenty feet away from their tables with a mobile tablet-like device that provides a first person view of the drone’s journey.

When the staff eventually becomes more comfortable with operating these new inventions, they will be able to control them from the back of the restaurant where the food is first placed on the iTrays.

Excluding the Domino’s Pizza delivery drone known as the DomiCopter, the iTray is the first drone to be used in the food service industry.

YO! Sushi CEO Robin Rowland describes the iTray drone as 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 drone was first introduced to promote the restaurant’s new sushi burger, Robin said.

“The concept came from our thinking of ‘How are we going to show people how light and exciting and fun this food type is?’ “

The iTray’s top speed is 25 mph, though it obviously travels at speeds much slower than that when carrying food.

If only the drones we use in the Middle East dropped delicious food instead of bombs. It’s hard to imagine the current wave of Islamic extremism continuing its path of destruction if this was the case.
