As the saying goes theres no such thing as a free lunch
The Aestheticodes┬áResearch in the wild project kicked off with a user participation workshop at Busaba Eathai in Store Street, London. 20 regular Diners, some of them early adopters of the Busaba Payment App developed in conjunction with MyCheck participated in a ideation workshop.
The guests were given a quick introduction to the Aestheticodes technology, through a drawing demo. Following this intro they were encouraged to play with the idea of drawing their own codes.
Following the great Thai food they split into groups and brian-stormed various applications in the restaurant context.
The ideas were very exciting, some of them at first appeared on the crazy side but through extended discussion there was some ideas that had potential mileage in them.
