Interactive Projections Interactive Bar – The highlight of your clubs or bars!


A counter from another universe!

Butterflies sit on your hand while you sip on your favorite drink, sending a message through sliding an interactive note across the bar to the stranger sitting on the other side of the bar, or a flowing water illusion allowing you to create ripples in the water. Arn’t these the experiences that you will like to see during your next visit to a club on Saturday night?

The product – your new bar

Introducing, Interactive Projections Interactive Bar, a gesture based tracking technology by Interactive Projections. The Interactive Bar is an innovative product by Interactive Projections Media that transforms a regular bar into an interactive platform to enable restaurant and bar patrons to network and engage in collaborative activities and create a great ambient experience. Integrated video-projectors project any content on the milky bar-surface. The intelligent tracking system of the Interactive Bar detects all objects touching the surface. This input is used to let the projected content interact dynamically with the movements on the counter. Objects can be illuminated at their position or virtual objects can be interacted with the hands.

Fascinate your customers

This product can be installed across any hospitality venue as a tool to give its customers an avenue to engage and interact amongst themselves through next-gen motion and gesture technology. The state-of-the-art features of the Interactive Bar not only engage the audience, but create a memorable experience.

Content Samples

This showcase demonstrates some of the readymade effects available in our library which work on mouse motions. The mouse motion will be replaced by multi-point human gesture on the Interactive Projections system. These templates can be easily customized by replacing the images and also the backdrops in them. Interactive Projections provides a free open SDK and an interface into the system to allow 3rd party developers to develop content other than our standard templates and upload it to Interactive Projections platform. Note: Some of the effects may run slow on machines without graphic accelerators or low RAM. These effects would run smoothly on Interactive Projections Systems.
