McDonald's adds RFID food ordering in Korea

Michael Caputo

SK Telecom and McDonald's have teamed up in Seoul, Korea near local Yonsei University to enable RFID food ordering. Customers start off by downloading an application via SK Telecom's internet service. Once the application has been downloaded, customers can visit McDonald's to find an RFID adapter at each table. Customers plug the adapter into their cell, point it at the menu and then ta da! They are alerted via text message that their order is ready and where to pick it up. To top everything off, customers are billed on their wireless bill. Now how long will it be until we can order food via our cell phone and pick it up in the drive thru?
