But it’s when you activate the bespoke software that iBar comes to life. As guests put down their glass on the bar, random creative effects appear beneath it. A friend sets down their drink and the two glasses connect. As it’s also activated by finger, the partygoers can get creative, generating digital patterns, with a myriad of colours and shapes appearing beneath their touch.
iBar is a modular design so whilst this client wanted a square, the 1.2m sections can be configured into different shapes and layouts. A built in cooling system ensures it can be active into the early hours, and the Perspex top protects the electronics from damage. It comes with a host of optional functionality. Add a QR code to the bottom of a glass or bottle and when rested on the iBar, it can be programmed to show specific content. Perhaps you want to show product information – or give one of your guests a prize winning code. iBar can be bespoke branded to reflect an organisation’s corporate identity. It’s a superb solution for any type of branding event or product launch.
For this particular customer, it turned out to be a bar that the guests were very happy to prop up all night
When asked to deliver a bar with a difference for a private party at the Bloomsbury Ballroom in London, we decided to give guests something to interact with.
We created a huge 5 metre square bar with in 12 x 55” multi-taction cells set into a bespoke timber carcass, with practical touches like built in shelving for bar necessities. And with the final addition of specially written bespoke software, iBar was born.
