Self-Service Ordering at Fast Food Joints

This is a spotting of a crazy ordering contraption at one of those Taco Bell/KFC hybrids in North Carolina. It seems that paying a high-school kids $6 an hour was too much to handle, now they are putting the burden of ordering onto the customer. This is just a large touch screen where all of the ordering and paying happens. It doesn't seem like that much more of a convenience. What about Grandma who can't even work her toaster, or perhaps somebody with bad eyesight? This would just hold up the lines even more. Anybody actually used one of these systems and wants to offer some input? They don t seem to have them around my Kansan backwoods.
