Finnish design festival's internet-controlled cafe


A cafe created for the World Design Capital festival in Helsinki is letting people reshape its interior design over the internet.

Anyone with a computer or smartphone can change the height of the chairs and tables, dim the lights or be the DJ at the Kauko Cafe.

The experiment is being broadcast live on the internet and all the customers get a free coffee.
