Event Report: Future Cafe at SO-HO-sai (University of Tsukuba festival)


Thanks to the contribution of AI plate technology from Asukanet Co., Ltd., Rakuten Institute of Technology and the University of Tsukuba, held a “Future Café” exhibition at Soho Sai (the university festival) from November 3rd through November 5th.

Rakuten Institute of Technology (RIT) and University of Tsukuba, School of Arts and Design opened a “Future Store Design Laboratory” in the University’s General Research Building D in 2016, and we are jointly conducting research and development of new shopping systems utilizing the internet and intelligent information processing technology. 

Our “Future Cafe” exhibition demonstrated a vision of the future featuring entertainment technology that users can enjoy in the context of a café experience and the connection between users of real stores and the internet. We also displayed the results of our daily research activities that we have worked on as our laboratory.

There were approximately 700 visitors that came to our future café and we won the award of “Kantousho-award” of the University of Tsukuba festival Grand Prix. Thank you for joining our “Future Café”. We deeply appreciate that we had a lot of attendance.
