A Japanese restaurant has brought a new meaning to the term 'fast food', hurtling meals towards customers on what it claims is the world's first flying tray. Dubbed the iTray, the lightweight, carbon fibre gadget can travel at speeds of up to 11 metres per second (25mph) and has a range of 50 metres. The remote-controlled platter can reach speeds of 25mph Waiters and waitresses at YO! Sushi guide the platter through the air using an iPad app, while kitchen staff can check the food is delivered by watching real-time video feeds from two on-board cameras. "We're all about innovation and delivering a whole concept in an unusual and exciting way," said Robin Rowland, chief executive of YO! Sushi. "The iTray ... is a way for us to explain how exciting food can be." The restaurant chain, which is credited with bringing the kaiten conveyor belt to the UK, has trialled a number of innovations since its launch in 1997. Speaking robot drinks trolleys, self-heating plates and video game toilets are among the gadgets used at its 64 UK stores.
