PiePal Orders Pizza at the Touch of a Button: The Easy Button for Pizza Delivery
November 8th, 2013
Fast food pizza is the lazy man’s favorite meal, next to the Anything Edible Within Arm’s Reach value meal. I loooove that one. But ordering pizza is still quite the hurdle for the indolent. Thankfully iStrategyLabs is here to solve that problem with the PiePal, a device that orders pizza in just a few seconds.
Before you sloths utter an unintelligible moan that can only mean that you’re beside yourself with joy, there are a few caveats with the PiePal. First of all, it can only order one type of pizza and only from Dominos. Second, you have to have a user account on Domino’s online delivery website. That’s because the PiePal is actually a Raspberry Pi that’s running an automated pizza ordering software. You’ll need to enter your Wi-Fi network’s name and password, Domino’s account details and the specific pizza you want into the program. You can do it; it’ll let you be lazy in the long run.
Also, I lied about the one button thing. You actually have to turn a dial before you can press the button to order. I know, it’s hard, but the dial lets you select the number of pizzas you want to order. Then press the big button on the PiePal to place your order.
If you’re interested in owning a PiePal, get off your butt for a second and sign up on the PiePal website to become a “beta taster.” Mmmm, beta.
