Kauko – Remote control your cafe
Spying on lovers having a coffee is one thing. Changing the music, lighting and even their table height is another. At Kauko (Finnish for remote) you can do all of this from the safety of the web, illustrating how design affects us all.
I always dig web-real-life connections. No doubt it is fun for web users to play soft pranks on people in the cafe. I just wonder how pleasant it is to be a patron there.
Check out the Kauko website (during opening hours in Helsinki). The cafe is part of a wider campaign to celebrate Helsinki as the World’s Design Capital in 2012 and was conceived and built by Perfect Fools and GP UdstillningsDesign.
