Display-Equipped Dinner Plates

The 'DishCanvas' Can be Changed to Suit Different Fare

— August 15, 2019 — Art & Design
The 'DishCanvas' has been developed by the Game Changer Catapult team from Panasonic as a digital dining solution that seeks to enhance the eating experience with the use of multimedia.

The plates are equipped with a display that can be augmented via the accompanying app to create a visual presentation using imagery that is texturized, fluid and engaging. This will help to entice the diner and enhance their experience as they enjoy the creations of a chef at a premium restaurant.

The 'DishCanvas' is targeted towards restaurant owners and chefs, but also shows promise for avid entertainers who want to wow guests with immersive imagery right from the dining table. The plats have been created in different shapes to accommodate an array of recipes.
