Of course, only three pizzas can be delivered at once, so your delivery charge just went up to $15.

"As this video shows, the fast food chain is applying physics principles to pizza delivery to ensure your pie doesn't arrive resembling a regurgitated hunk of lasagna."


No amount of physics is going to prevent Domino's from tasting like a regurgitated hunk of lasagna, though.

That is great.  Problem is Dominoes is not really "pizza".

Magnetic bottle or GTFO.

Leave it to Domino's to incorporate  " pendulums of lead " as an ingredient for pizza

Or you know.. Just stop driving like an asshole while high on pot delivering pizza

Fortunately that isn't gyroscopic. As a former pizza driver a can say with authority that if it were gyroscopic and someone ordered on the edge of our delivery area (say Nigeria), it would end up with the pizza arriving on edge considering the pizza in relation to the center of gravity of the earth. This is an attempt (albeit an unwieldy one) to have the pizza remain perpendicular to whatever forces are acting on it, which makes much more sense and is much more beneficial in terms of gratuity...except for that biatch on Morning Drive. Turns out that a pizza will hold its form if you open the car windows when it's -20 F. too. Trust me, she deserved it.

Those are gimbals, not gyroscopes. And it's Domino's, not pizza.

Well, you need to stabilize the pizza somehow if you want to reliably get it up to the roof.

pizza dude's got 30 seconds
/oblig with a domino's mention...

instead of spending all that money researching gyroscopic pizza delivery, they could have funded some research on making a better pizza.

What pizza place did you work for that will deliver to someplace 90 degrees of longitude away, and how did you get it there in 30 minutes or less?

Damn, I was hoping for one of those real cool life hacks.

Toss your own pizza?  YOUR DOING IT WRONG!!

I don't want to divulge my employer because the pizza is still in the car and I'm running a little late (about 20 years). I figure they'll build a bridge (or a tunnel) sooner or later. The problem is that the waitresses take the orders and they don't always know if an address is in our delivery area or not & once the pizza is made, we're screwed. I just hope that Nigerian prince comes through with a huge tip because I'm driving a 1975 Buick LeSabre. Gas is going to be a killer.

yeah, and they're doing it wrong.

First there were the little Barbie end-tables to keep the lid from smashing into the pie, insulated bags, then electric pizza-warming bags, and now gimbal stabilization. Seriously, how close are we to Neal Stephenson's vision of pizza delivery?

I cant see anyone who has ordered a pizza with extra cheese objecting to this.  Did not RTFA.

Japan is getting a kick, etc:

Except that the most extreme forces at work on any delivery are in acceleration and especially braking and keeping the pizzas parallel to the horizon does nothing to diminish those forces.
