MiWorld in South Africa is the epitome of advances in online/offline technology. The series of two (soon to be three) bars and restaurants offer both online and human interaction by giving customers touchscreens so they can register the type of interaction they're in the mood for.
The "Mi" part of MiWorld in South Africa stands for "meaningful interaction," according to the MiWorld website. This MiWorld idea seems like a pretty innovative concept, but I have issues with technology invading the strictly human world. To me, it's just weird.
