RAD-UM’s Coff-e-Bar at eMerge uses the coffee ritual as a catalyst for social interaction, as well as a vehicle for collective engagement with technology. In this demonstration of the Internet of Things, Computer Vision and Augmented Reality transform paper cups and an ordinary glass tabletop into smart interfaces. The digitally enhanced objects enable visitors to visualize and navigate in real time the stream of information flowing through social media while enjoying some freshly brewed coffee.
