Animated and interactive table at the Inamo St James restaurant allows diners to order, play and request to pay.

In our Future of Retail report we have a fascinating example of an electronic mirror found at the Inamo St. James restaurant on London’s Regent Street. On our recent trip to the UK we visited the restaurant to try out the interactive tables that all diners use there.

When diners sit a screen is projected on the table and through the use of a touchpad they can order drinks, food, games and even a taxi. A fun aspect of the interaction is that a diner can see how the dishes will look once served, as an image gets projected on a plate on the table before they order. With a mouse click, each dish can be added to a list — and then when the diner is happy with their selection that list of orders is electronically sent to the kitchen.
