Just when you thought you’d seen everything as far as strange ways that people use their iPads is concerned, sfist, via 9to5 Mac, reports that Michelin-starred San Francisco restaurant Quince has been using iPads as plates on which to serve food to its customers.
The iPad plates actually form part of the artistic presentation of the food, rather than being simply a very expensive way of avoiding washing up! Tweeting about the digital dish, San Francisco chef Richie Nakano (who seemed less than impressed with the idea, it has to be said!), posted a picture of the dish, which was captioned, “‘A Dog in Search of Gold,’ - white truffle croquettes on iPads playing videos of water dogs on the truffle-hunt.”
However, it seems Quince didn’t actually invent this idea, as sfist writes that according to the Daily Mail, serving food on strange surfaces, including trash can lids and inside shoes, as well as on iPads with pictures of plates on them, has already been a craze in the UK for a year or so.
