Does anyone else think this is cool?

Nolan Bushnell, the founder and former CEO of Atari is also the founder and former CEO of Chuck E Cheese's Pizza (anyone from the US will know the glory of Chuck E Cheese to an 8 year-old.)

I don't know... to me that seems like a strange combination. I think its pretty neat. Mr. Bushnell's current venture is uWink, a media based restaurant.

uWink, Inc. has created a new entertainment dining experience that you can't get anywhere else.

Our fun, casual environment makes it easy for people to interact, have fun, play games, and enjoy delicious, reasonably priced meals. It's not a game arcade or pool hall. uWink is an interactive, social restaurant, where you are in control of your meal and your fun.

uWink provides delicious modern comfort food made with fresh ingredients ordered via touch screen terminals at the table and served by runners, quickly and accurately.

uWink's at-the-table-entertainment includes a large variety of games, table-to-table interaction, "edutainment", videos and more. The dynamic projected interior provides diners with scrumptious i-candy and a hip, ever-changing environment.
