These smart wine bottles use Thinfilm's Open Sense technology and a connecting app to reveal wine authentication. By connecting to a smartphone, consumers can have information regarding a wine product's sealed and open states delivered right to their hand.
With false bottles emerging in the wine industry, it is important to hone in on this tool to ensure bottles can be properly authenticated. Otherwise, counterfeiter bottles will continue to be distributed and they will never be as good as the real authentic wine that is being falsified.
This smart wine bottle created by Thinfilm is set to present a working prototype in collaboration with premium wine company Ferngrove Wine Group. The prototype will be unveiled at the 2015 Mobile World Congress, Shanghai. This smart piece of technology will increase the business to consumer relationship and maintain a transparent brand image.
