Just Eat trials ordering wand device

At the moment, the wand is only capable of asking the app to make the last order on the user's Just Eat account.

The prototype wand developed by the food app firm uses soundwave technology to trigger an order on the Just Eat app. It features gesture control for "wave wand ordering" that can be programmed with up to five favourite takeaways.

The 3D-printed device is fitted with 'Chirp' soundwave technology that transmits an encrypted sound signal instructing the Just Eat app to make an order. Each user will have their own unique signal, Known as a "sonic barcode", that is paired with their Just Eat account. The signal carries data in a series of audible or near-ultrasonic pitches and tones, which chimes from a speaker at the base of the wand. A button on the side of the prototype wand triggers the sound, which places an order on Just Eat when the app is open and logged in.

The wand is expected to be released in 2018.
