Conrad / virtual table


The project „Conrad“ provides an answer to the question of how to connect and bond - over wide distances - with people in today‘s society. In order to satisfy the curiosity of open-minded people about other countries, religions and cultures, „Conrad“ supplies a network of stations in public cafés, consisting of a life-size screen, a table and a place to sit. By connecting two stations in different cities all over the world, there‘s the possibility for friends or completly strangers to virtually meet for a cup of coffee. New technologies support a meeting to be as real as possible. An app helps to make a first contact and organize the meeting.
