“Pork & Apple, the perfect combination”

Ever concerned with the usability of tablet point of sale – Edinburgh, UK based Intelligent Point of Sale Limited has invested in robotic technologies to ensure that their software is compatible with the most digitally-challenged of individuals.

The robotic sausage finger emulator (R.S.F.E.) has been developed by Intelligent Point of Sale to perform user interface tests on their mobile application, intelligentpos – a point of sale solution for retail and hospitality businesses, available on the Apple iPad platform.

Speaking from the company’s head-office comms room, Paul Walton, CTO at Intelligent Point of Sale states “It took me at least 3 hours to build this robot and a further 10 minutes to procure a sausage from a local supermarket. I have witnessed first-hand the issues caused by sausage-finger sufferers such as ‘Dave’ and I am proud to say that we at Intelligent Point of Sale limited are investing in the technology to help those afflicted”.
