We all know the risks associated with excessive drinking at parties, especially around the holidays. What if there was a smart way to know when we’ve had too much to drink and when it’s time to hand over the keys? A new company has taken to Kickstarter with its latest invention, the SmartPourer, which aims at managing alcohol intake to encourage living a healthier and safer life.
The SmartPourer lets you consume alcohol more intelligently by monitoring your drinking habits. It can calculate just how much alcohol you have consumed and also let you know when you’ve had too much to drive. The data collected is stored in a specially designed app that you can download for iOS or Android. With the app on your smartphone or tablet. The app even tells you if it is safe enough for you to drive based on how much you’ve had to drink over a certain period of time.
The SmartPourer app lets you be in “drinking” communication with your friends. It can track their statistics as well as your own. This means you can be updated about ongoing parties and be aware about your friends’ favorite drinks and cocktails.
The device is pretty simple and reportedly very easy to use. Just install the free app on your smartphone. Then, remove the cork from the bottle you intend to use for monitoring and replace it with the NFC Smart Cork. Put the SmartPourer in and then just place your smartphone nearby to make it active. From that moment on, the app will monitor and control the amount of alcohol you drink with the SmartPourer app.
Good health is life’s greatest blessing, and our goal is to preserve it. SmartPourer allows you to take control of your drinking life.
The aim of SmartPourer is to ensure your safety and comfort when you decide to drink and to provide peace of mind. If you would like your own SmartPourer you can order one now with a pledge of $79 or more on the Kickstarter campaign site. That’s 38% off the expected retail price and the current lowest you can get it for from the early bird special. If all goes as planned and SmartPourer reaches it fundraising goal, the product is expected to reach backers by August of 2018.
