McDonald’s is offering diners a taste of the future alongside their Big Mac’s with the roll out of Samsung galaxy tablets across its UK estate.

‘Experience of the Future’ will offer patrons access to the internet, games and social media whilst they dine although the one thing you won’t be able to do is order any food or pay the bill, for that you’ll have to stand in line along with everyone else.
