IBM and Xing Offer Food, Wine and Song -- Wirelessly
Get ready to do away with cumbersome menus and karaoke books -- in Japan at least. New products co-developed by IBM and Xing allow customers to order their food, drink and karaoke selection from their table wirelessly. The Kyoku-NAVI II and Kyoku-NAVIs handheld controllers, available in early November, save the user the trouble of flipping through thick karaoke books by offering a searchable touch screen database sorted by singer, song and category. The controllers work in Japanese, English, Chinese and Korean. The devices will also let the user know what songs have been selected in the past, and register a list of favorites. The NAVI II can handle food and drink orders, as well, while the NAVIs only handles music.
