Opening a bottle would trigger a confetti explosion or a change in tune
StartCap is not just a bottle cap, it's an artistic installation in itself. Strongbow came up with this revolutionizing digital bottle cap, which is controlled via an RFID signal.A wireless device is implanted into the bottle cap, using RFID or Radio-frequency identification, which can transfer data to a receiver, Wikipedia informs.
The device allows information to be stored on it. When the bottle is opened, it sends a signal that, manufacturers advertise, will send out a specific command and “trigger an unexpected event.”
The RFID signal can be linked to an MP3 player, triggering a change in music, or to a foam or confetti machine, making opening the bottle the start to an evening or its highlight.
As is to be expected, Strongbow believe their automated bottle caps will be found a use in the party and entertainment field, allowing customers to “give the night a Fresher Start.”
