Abstract / Zusammenfassung: This work reports of a multidisciplinary concept design aiming at exploring the use of mixed reality in a common environment like a Café. One of the concepts that resulted out of several user centered design activities, is the ScreenTray, used to carry food and beverage from the counter to the tables and augmented by an integrated touch screen and a "orientation-aware” pointing device. Through participatory design we validated use scenarios with café customers, and produced a mock-up and a virtual prototype.
