The EPOS lite is a concept design for a hi-tech cash register. The device, ideal for restaurants, has a touchscreen interface and a built-in menu, the design for which was inspired by the Apple MacBook Air and iPhone.
The EPOS lite concept can be easily updated with new menus, thus saving businesses from reprinting new menu data. Customers can simply make their orders directly right from the screen. When the meal items have been selected, they are beamed wirelessly to the chef's screen in the kitchen.
With the EPOS lite, when it's time to pay the bill, diners no longer need to call the waiter over. The pricing is shown directly on the screen, customers just have to pick their payment method (debit or credit card) and enter their payment details.
The EPOS lite concept was featured at the 2008 University of Wolverhampton Degree Show and also at the New Designers 08 London event.
