Brand Table uses NFC technology to order food

BrandTable Concept from S_Digital on Vimeo.

We've heard of near field communication or NFC technology being used to make mobile payments (go check out Google Wallet if you haven't already), but a student from the University of Sydney has integrated this kind of simple, transactional technology into tables at restaurants so that customers can quickly and easily order food.

Basically, stickers are placed on a table and then people can use their devices to tap them, pull up a menu on the screen, place an order AND make a payment all in one go without them even having to move. It's convenient, innovative, but possibly a little lazy!

Watch the video above to see how the new NFC project dubbed Brand Table works.
