Japan’s high-tech conveyor belt sushi restaurants

Watch more with these video collections:

What if food came to your restaurant table on a conveyor belt, kaiten-zushi or carousel-style? In this technology demonstration video from automation equipment company Hong-Chiang, we get to see Japan‘s famous conveyor belts for sushi and other traditional foods.

In a restaurant like this, most everything is automated: the ordering system, the high speed food delivery, the dirty plate return, and even much of the food preparation in the kitchen. There’s also a device that can calculate the total price within seconds from a stack of used plates by reading the IC chips within them.

Watch more food on conveyor belts, some glass bottles on conveyor belts, and a bunch of toy cars, too. Also, how is Japanese fake food made?
