How cool is this


I'm always on the look out for innovative ways to implement technology. Well, I'm dead impressed with this restaurant where the menus are projected onto the table tops, and diners can order food, change the look of their tables, play games and even order a cab home. Looks great fun, providing it works. So, how does it work? If the information is being projected onto ordinary table tops, it can't be interactive. So, the tabletops must be active in some way (LCD?)

Just think of the potential for it going wrong.

So, any similar uses for this technology in a University?

From the article it looks like the tables are being projected onto from above.

They could be using something like the new Touchless SDK that Microsoft just announced.

Just hope the food's not virtual!
