"I'll have a pint of what it's having..."

What fresh hell is this? It looks like the computer console out of Quantum Leap:

Of course it's not; it's an iBar, an intelligent surface system.

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.

That's all very well, but can it serve a pint of lager shandy? No? So what's the point? Well it is very pretty, as the video shows...


What do you think?
