A new digital menu at Pizza Hut can guess with 98 percent accuracy what kind of pizza you’d like to order, without you having to say a word.
The computerized Subconscious Menu, which is still only in trials, displays icons of 20 toppings such as pepperoni and olives on a screen. Then a hungry but indecisive customer such as yourself looks over the icons.
