Video: Interactive Restaurant Table Uses Portable Hologram Projector

January 30, 2018 by Dave Haynes

I spotted this video on Linkedin – a hologram projection thingie touted as being part of the restaurant of the future.

It’s interesting, and perhaps one day this sort of thing would get used somewhere, but there are a few things to reasonably note and ask:

Restaurants have done interactive tables here and there, and it can be cool, but projections from overhead that a full table can see make more sense, and I think they need to have pretty amazing content, like this, to get beyond what would short-term wow factor. Cranky people like me would ask for the real menu.

    Obviously they are working on a standalone device. Does the author know the concept of battery?
    Why would people want to hold an iPad when they can interact directly with the menu using this hands-free solution?

    Great write up Dave! Still laughing.
