IKEA’s New Dining Table Concept Forces People To Get Off Their Smartphones
By Yoon Sann Wong, 01 Feb 2016

The idea involves the hotpot–a culinary specialty commonly enjoyed across multiple Asian countries and that is eaten in groups.
In order to cook the food in the pot, diners have to fuel the heat by placing their smartphones beneath the elevated crock.
The fewer mobile phones beneath the hotpot, the weaker the heat generated.
