Night clubs are always looking for an inside edge, which is resulting in dozens of high tech innovations. The latest: iBar. iBar tracks any objects on the surface and creates dynamic interactive lighting effects. Far out.

When a patron rests their drink on the bar, light surrounds the glass and a beam links it to another glass, perhaps that of a new friend.

The company describes, "The iBar system is ready to be installed completely into any kind of bar-counter, there's no need for any further installations on the ceiling or something like that. The software is flexible and can be adjusted and enhanced." Stats for High Tech Bars Trending: Older & Warm
