For my final university project we were given an open brief with the only restraint being that the project must be completed within 8 weeks. I decided to build an interactive coffee table, titled Table Service, that uses RFID readers underneath the table to read RFID tags placed on the bottom of the cups and glasses to determine the type of drink (and location) placed on the surface. By the submission of the project, the system was essentially a ‘bookcase’ ready for ‘books’ (read: events) to be put into it; such as games, infographics, videos and other information.
