Waiter, There’s a Laser Cannon in My Soup

The NYT reports that Nolan Bushnell, the inventor of the Pong video game and founder of Chuck E. Cheese, will be opening a video game-themed restaurant in West LA called, uh, Media Bistro:

In an interview last week, he described how the 300-seat restaurant and bar would combine food and drink with ubiquitous interactive media. Touch-screen monitors, installed at every table, booth and barstool, will allow diners to place food orders, play some 70 different video and trivia games, and even take instant pop culture polls.

The monitors at the tables will be two-sided, so that two people, or two couples, will be able to play video games against each other.

If the waiters dress like Master Chief from Halo, I am so there.chief.jpg
