The waiters at a Eugene, OR, U.S.-based bar and restaurant are now using electronic tablets to take customers' orders instead of the standard pen and notepad, according to an Associated Press report.

The orders at The Dive Bar are taken by pressing the screen of an electronic tablet and then sent via radio waves to the restaurant's main computer, and a ticket prints out in the kitchen, where a cook grabs it and gets to work, according the report.

The bar's owner, Mike West, said he's hoping the new system will pay for itself in reduced labor costs, the report stated. The wireless technology was developed by ViewTouch Inc., a four-employee Eugene, OR, U.S. software firm.
