You can now have pizza delivered to your face using nothing but voice activation. All you need to do is open an app (using Siri if you don’t even want to touch your screen) which automatically counts down from 10 (a small window to allow for your indecision to subside) before placing your order for you.

First it was autonomous pizza-dispensing robots. Now, Domino’s is bringing a fleet of pizza delivery drones to the masses. If the headline-hungry company can be believed, New Zealand customers will soon be receiving pizzas from the skies via a technology partnership with drone delivery service Flirtey.
Domino’s has proudly proclaimed its new initiative as the first commercial drone delivery service in the world. However, there’s no timeframe for when the service will be available and the service is still seeking approval from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). Hmmm.
I dunno about you, but I don’t usually associate Census night with pizza. The State of Origin final, maybe, or the NRL grand final, sure. But Census night? Anyway, despite that weirdness, we spotted a pretty tempting deal for 30 per cent off Domino’s pizzas online. Now you can stuff your face with a BBQ Meatlovers while you share your personally identifiable data with a government agency.
It starts with one domino. It branches off into different lines. It ends with 272,297 dominos being toppled over.
Is this pizza-delivering drone from Dominos just a publicity stunt or a tantalising look at the future of food delivery? Because while the eight-bladed DomiCopter is a little impractical given it needs a skilled pilot, eventually autonomous drones will be capable of delivering a piping hot pizza in mere minutes since they’re able to avoid traffic.
How’s this for a brilliant marketing campaign? To help sell the notion that there’s no better way to spend an evening than with a pizza and a movie, Domino’s in Brazil created custom DVDs with a heat-reactive flavoured varnish that actually smelled like pizza once they were played.
If you’re a pizza fan, it might be time to keep an eye on your credit card statements. Pizza Hut Australia last night appears to have fallen victim to hackers going by the names of Oday and Pyknic (Update: Pizza Hut CEO confirms breach, read on for full statement). The hackers defaced the website last night, but what’s more concerning is the claim that they made off with 260,000 Australian credit card numbers. That’s some serious dough.
