Food Delivered Via Conveyor Belt

I may well be one of the last people on earth to have heard of the conveyor belt sushi restaurants (maybe because I don't really eat sushi?), but it's an intriguing concept. Japan is where this trend originated (from all accounts) and here's a video that gives viewers a good idea of how it works.

Apparently the trend has spread. I found video on conveyor belt restaurants in Virginia in the U.S., Korea, Toronto and even a Kosher one in New York. Here's the video from the Kosher sushi bar.

I prefer the covered plates in Manhattan - someone waiting for food could sneeze (amongst other reasons)!
Still ... there wouldn't be a need for wait staff to try to get around the aisles (especially important in crowded cities), tipping would be lessened or nil (?), and food is right there.
I like our buffets where you help yourself, but there is always the worry of others' germs - not that it cuts down on how much I eat at those places!

Yes, I was thinking the same thing about the covered plates.
