Three Mobile & Samsung - The Connected Restaurant

  • Izzy Kertland
Project produced at UNIT9.
The Connected Restaurant launched in both Dublin and Sydney in November of 2018, giving families on the opposite sides of the world a chance to enjoy a Christmas meal together. By combining the latest high-speed technology with Samsung QLED screens, it felt as if the families were eating a synchronised three-course meal together even though the two halves of each table in the restaurant were separated by thousands of miles.
The restaurant was live over 5 days in both locations. As well as the meal the families had additional surprises throughout the experience. Personalised crackers, snow globes that triggered snow on either side of the world and a photobooth that combined feeds from both locations, capturing a family portrait that was then printed and framed to take home.
