Ever thought a fridge equipped with a touchscreen and connected to the Internet is useless? Then check out the newest Wi-Fi wine bottle. Kuvée, a start-up company from the United States, has recently announced that it had launched the world’s first smart bottle.
Why would you buy a smart bottle when you can settle for a regular one? Because smart gadgets are a must-have nowadays. A couple of months ago, a company from Japan announced it has launched a mini-fridge that looks exactly like R2-D2.
And apart from chilling your favorite beverages, the fridge could move like R2, talk like R2 and could even play clips via an integrated projector and connect to the Internet.
But who can keep up with the gadget’s market? Apparently, the answer came sooner than anticipated. Kuvée, a small start-up from the US, has recently announced the launch of the very first smart bottle.
And for those of you are asking: yes, the bottle can do all the stuff your smartphone can, sans calling and texting someone. According to Kuvée, the world’s first smart bottle can connect to the Internet, via a Wi-Fi connection.
According to the company, the wine’s bottling process is the same as in the case of regular wine. The ruby liquid is stored in a metal container that, according to Kuvée, can keep the wine fresh for up to 30 days.
So, what’s the use of the Wi-Fi connection? Well, the company said that the feature has all kinds of uses. For example, the customer can use the friendly UI touchscreen system in order to browse through the wine collection, which seems to amass approximately 48 kinds of wine, some of them from renowned wineries such as Schug, Pine Ridge, Bonny Doon and B.R Cohn.
The wine comes packed in metal cartridges, which the customers can insert directly into the smart bottle. Also, the Wi-Fi-enabled smart bottle can feed the users various information such as the wine’s temperature, how much wine is in the cartridge and about what dish is best served with that wine.
Moreover, the users also have access to information about the wine’s origins and the history of the winery. If you run out of wine, fret not, because the system can be configured to order another cartridge once the level of wine is low.
Anyone can acquire this dastardly contraction for a mere 179 dollars, but the offer is limited. So, after ordering your very own smart bottle, be sure to buy the R2-D2 fridge, because one can’t have too many gadgets.
