Summary

  • KabaQ makes it possible to visualize the dishes of a menu in augmented reality
  •  KabaQ is not just for restaurant cards

Everyone knows the traditional restaurant menus. Some offer some pictures of the dishes but, for some, the choice remains difficult, especially when it comes to innovative or unknown dishes. As well, The New York-based company KabaQ has developed an innovative solution, based on Apple's ARKit, to visualize in augmented reality the different dishes of a restaurant before ordering. An AR solution which however finds applications in other fields of catering and gastronomy.



KabaQ makes it possible to visualize the dishes of a menu in augmented reality

Customers of a restaurant offering the KabaQ solution can now view all the dishes on the menu in augmented reality. With a simple tablet given by the waiter or located at the entrance of the restaurant, it is thus possible to visualize in augmented reality and in 360 degrees the dishes of the menu. You can also zoom in and see what the chef has to offer from every angle before deciding to choose. A welcome help for the undecided and when it comes to unknown or innovative recipes.

The KabaQ solution goes further by offering not only a 360-degree interactive presentation of the restaurant menu, but also the ingredients that make up a dish. KabaQ also allows you to visualize the realistic size of the portions served as well as the supplements that can be added and the wines recommended for such a choice.. An innovative solution that avoids unpleasant surprises.

 KabaQ is not just for restaurant cards

The designers of the KabaQ application have also designed the application, available on iOS and Android, for a large number of other fields of application other than restaurant menus. The solution is also ideal for businesses that deliver food to your home.. It is thus possible to view on your smartphone or tablet the different choices offered by the home delivery company.




KabaQ also aims caterers who offer menus for specific events. Finally, the New York-based company has thought of cookbooks or to chefs who publish their recipes on the Internet. A brilliant solution to visualize the finished dish as well as its presentation. All the great chefs will tell you ... preparing a dish, especially in gastronomy, is quite an art and the visual part of the presentation is just as important as the flavor of the dish itself.
