London based design studio Berg, teamed with Dentsu London to consider receipts as applications. From their description:
Weâ€™ve added semi-useful info-visualisation of the foods ordered based on â€œwhat the till knowsâ€ â€“ sparklines, trends â€“ and low-tech personalisation of information that might be useful to regulars. Customers can select events or news stories they are interested in by ticking a check box.
We think the humble receipt could be something like a paper â€œappâ€ and be valuable in small and playful ways.
