In this day and age where communications is done mostly via the electronic format, some people do find the human touch in a bar comforting instead of just words and digits over an LCD display. Too bad high-end technology could soon creep into your favorite watering hole soon with the iBar interactive bar counter.
iBar is a system for the interactive design of any bar-counter. Integrated video-projectors can project any content on the milky bar-surface. The intelligent tracking system of iBar detects all objects touching the surface. This input is used to let the projected content interact dynamically with the movements on the counter. Objects can be illuminated at their position or virtual objects can be “touched” with the fingers.
I wonder how much talking will be done then at bar counters, or will people be mesmerized and remain in their own world staring downwards at the counter even after a couple of pints?
