Drive-through ordering: Now with even less human interaction. Huzzah! Thanks to the pioneers at iDriveThru, five Wendy's locations are now allowing you to pay for your nuggets with E-Z Pass technology, meaning you don't even have to reach outside your car until your food is ready.
Under the iDriveThru system, customers can make hands-free payments through a windshield transponder just like the E-Z Pass you use to visit your family two states over. Once you've linked your credit/ debit card information to the device, you can simply roll through the fast food lane and the tag will be read by sensors, which'll give you a personalized greeting on the video above the intercom. After you've placed your order, the payment is taken automatically and you can blow right past that cash-handling nonsense. At participating Wendy's chains, you also get reward points for every dollar you spend, working you towards a $5 coupon.
