The Memopad

It’s a table! It’s a scratch pad! It’s a Italian restaurant-hand me the crayons . . .

The Memodesk by Teamlab is a regular table combined with a giant memopad. Or is it a table and tablecloth from a Italian restaurant?

The manufacturer says it’s a way to create magic and on top of that . . . refills for your table!!!

Different specialties make for free discussions where each person is equal. Each hand moves, writing and sharing ideas, and at any point, someone else could join in, adding to the group with their mouths and with their hands, adding to the writing, and making everyone think. Let’s imagine that you want to start a good company in the pre-information era, and of course, you put a whiteboard on every wall of the meeting room, so it looks “just like it should”. It would be accepted by the world, but it wouldn’t be right in this age of information. If you want to build on the future of the information age, the memo desk is the way to go.

For some reason I doubt the nice Japanese woman is part of the bargain, it certainly is a different way to advertise your product.
