MenuVista (Quicktime req), the thesis project of ITP (NYU Interactive Telecommunications Program) student Chia-wei Chang, gives restaurant customers a preview of their orders by projecting photos of the meal on their empty plates. The system also allows them to modify their orders by using a projected menu with a touch sensor interface which includes menu text and food images. More ITP thesis presentations from last week »

Not to be a luddite, but this is really a bit much. I just like the idea of human interaction over food, but not to knock the post... good presentation and portion sizes.

It's an interesting idea, although I usually find stock photos of dishes in fast food places rather unappetizing. It would be fun to reconsider new representations of the food, as part of the design brief.

i understand moonbird's sentiment about human interaction over food, and i agree with it for a restaurant type of setting. but i think this would be spectacular in cafeterias.

I like it. Menus hardly ever make sense, unless the food is simple or I've been there before. Also looks like fun, but needs some scale for a table of 4.
