Especially what did you want to achieve?. Abhishek Chitranshi : I observed - 1. To order food we have to call waiter by hand gesture or just wait for them. 2. After placing order there is always a question that how long our order will take to be served. 3. How to spend the waiting time. 4. Keep asking waiter about when the food will be served. 5. Ask for menu and don't know which food is really good here. Not sure to take risk of new recipe. 6. Sometimes we feels like we know the person on next table or just like him/her but its bit uneasy to go and ask him/her. 7. If you are with a kid in restaurant it goes challenging to manage and enjoy your meal. The focus was to solve all these problems and design which not only solve them but also add the flavor of enhanced dining experience. .Frank Scott: What are your future plans for this award winning design?.
