Apple: iKnow Everything About Your Restaurant

stephen diumenti - Monday, December 16, 2013

An interesting patent application came across the wires recently. It seems that Apple has spent a lot of time thinking about how to i-ify the nuts and bolts of running the front end of a restaurant.

The company filed a patent (available for download here) for a system that brings together reservations, ordering, wait list management, and just about everything else using dynamic feedback and a certain amount of witchcraft.

The system knows the average amount of time it takes to eat certain dishes, as well as diners' allergies and preferences. It basically sees you when you're sleeping and knows when you're awake, and it uses all of that to update everything in real-time. Waiting for a table? Bang. The system, and thus your iPhone, knows that the person  sitting in what will be your chair just ordered a dish that generally takes 12 minutes to eat. Wait time updated. Pull out that iPhone again once you're seated to see recommendations of things you—you, in particular—might enjoy, and press a button to order.

Because everything talks to everything else, customers will even be able to search for restaurants based not only on reservation availability but also on the likelihood that a table will be ready by the time they walk into the restaurant.

This is just a patent, of course, and Apple files countless patents every year. Still, if this becomes reality, it will shake things up significant
