iPad debuts as point of sales system

A coffee shop in San Francisco called Sightglass Coffee Shop has just deployed an iPad as its point of sale (POS) terminal.  The device is running the Square payment system and is inserted into a custom made wooden swiveling stand which is shown in the picture in this post.

Interestingly the website for the payment system had exactly this coffee shop’s system front and center in their home page, as I was writing this post..

A credit card reader is attached to the iPad through the headphones jack on the top.  You can see the white rectangular shape on the upper left corner of the iPad in the picture.  MacLife has a post on this topic with some speculation the potential of the iPad as a POS terminal device.

A video demonstration of the payment system is available from you YouTube and I’ve embedded it below.
