Rezurok: So it's got no reliable landing point, nobody's brave enough to reach out and grab a tray surrounded by 4 slightly less than stable blades of death, and the waitress has to stand 10 feet away and try to control it by tilting a tablet around trying not to maim anybody this time.  This isn't a trial of some new awesome food service technology, it's a stupid PR stunt where they stuck a sushi tray on a quadrotor and flew it near a table for 30 seconds.

Clarifications:

I own an AR drone 2.0, the same helicopter in this video.  It is remarkably stable, provided that there isn't any wind.  As soon as it gets breezy, expect spilled lunches.

Secondly, it's not dangerous.  You could fly one into someones face at full speed and probably not injure them gravely.

Thirdly- These have barely any lift capacity.  As soon as they crash and damage a single rotor (which will happen soon since they're not running with the blade guard), it will barely be able to lift itself up, let alone a plate of sushi.

This is a gimmick, and not ready for prime time.
