Brief 5 - Futuristic Menus

When talking menus just aren't futuristic enough, we reckon Teraoka's Deli Touch pen is the next best thing. The system works with barcode-laden menus and enables customers to simply swipe their choices and have them beamed directly to the kitchen. Besides hastening the order process and keeping the interaction between customer and waiter / waitress at a minimum, the device may also give you a solid reason to skimp on the tip -- not that we'd recommend such a thing, of course. Unfortunately, we've no idea if this setup is built to play nice with picky eaters and their laundry list of special requests, so we'd probably recommend steering clear unless you're totally cool with the standard fare.

Small handset placed on table that can be digitally connected to the kitchen to update food choices. 

Interactive table design by Microsoft. Projection screen shines onto table where movement is captured and means that you can move images on the screen around.

More advanced version of the Microsoft interactive table design. Here customers can view the menu see what the food looks like and order the food on this interactive table projection. The design can also show a dining set for whilst eating.  I think this is an idea I would like to replicate and develop because I think it could work well for the Yo sushi restaurant.
