Pizza Hut, Visa and Accenture want you to buy pizza from your car, from The Washington Post.
Online shopping is moving to a new frontier, and it starts with pizza.
Pizza Hut, Visa and Accenture are teaming up to test a system that lets you order and pay for your pie from your car, the companies announced Monday.
Visa is demonstrating a proof-of-concept car at the ongoing Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
Here’s how it works: Visa’s checkout payment system is integrated into the dashboard of the car. The driver uses voice control technology to place an order by accessing Pizza Hut’s menu. Visa and Pizza Hut then validate your payment card information, and the pizza gets cooking. As you drive up to the nearest outlet, the restaurant is alerted to your arrival using Bluetooth-enabled “beacon technology.”
