Interesting Use For RFID
Despite all the hype about RFID, it hasn't really caught on in anything other than specialized uses -- like this one, for example:
On a busy Saturday night, a good bartender makes a lot of money for the bar's owner, but an overly generous bartender—or one fond of pouring free drinks for friends—can cost the owner even more.
Thanks Barn for the link.
A Miami-based 7-year-old beverage-monitoring software company is drinking from the keg of RFID and is selling a tilt switch that attaches to bottles and updates an Internet database every time the bottle is poured. Hilton, Hyatt, Outback Steakhouse, TGI Fridays and others are reportedly testing the system.
It's not merely recording how many times the bottle is poured, but it factors in the tilt of the bottle, the duration of the pour and the bartender's pouring style to calculate how much liquid is leaving the bottle.
