When technology and wine coincide, I’m there.
New York City’s St. Regis Hotel just opened a new wine bar named Ardour.
But it’s not just any wine bar.
Like the picture shows above, instead of a paper menu, the menu is projected onto the bar itself. The technology (objection-recognition software and cameras) is so sophisticated that it only recognizes hand gestures and nothing else – like glassware.
The menu tells you everything you’d ever need to know about the wine you’ve chosen, and don’t worry about losing any info, it’s all backed up on a web-based directory.
But if the Minority-report inspired technology is not for you, there’s a wine expert on duty at all times.
