That’s just cool. Usually the shit Japan invents has four other gadgets with it, one of which allows you to go to the bathroom. But this? I need here in the good old U.S. of A. One Burger King in Japan now allows you to dock your iPod as the music plays through overhead cones focused directly below. (Done using the principle of modulated ultrasound waves.) The means should your guilty pleasure KC and the Sunshine Band accidentally end up in the mix that day, the deathcore kids in the next booth won’t know about it. Devil’s advocate: Would it create more kids hanging out than who would actually buy something? Maybe. All I’d say in that case is make up your mind: You want traffic or not. Entice them by offering free downloads with (X) amount purchased then, or you could get bands to release exclusive songs found only in restaurants.
