Mobile tap at the food court – get food
Our very own Tim Buesing has created an interesting concept application for the use of NFC (near field communication) in food courts. Yes, food courts â€“ like those found at your local mall. The project, dubbed â€śBrandTable,â€ť involves circular stickers containing NFC tags secured to the tabletop that, when tapped with an NFC phone, launch a menu and ordering page for a particular restaurant.
Using the mobile site, customers can place their order and even pay, without having to visit the counter or wait in line. When the order is ready, the phone buzzes so you can go pick it up.
