The smart ice cube that can order your drink

Ice cubes

The Martini smart ice cube is a new concept design which can sense when you finish your drink and alert the bar staff to order you another.

 

The smart ice cube comes from Martini, the worlds leading vermouth and best-selling sparkling wine maker. The idea is that a barman places the ice cube in your drink when serving it. The device floats around in your drink until it’s finished, it then senses the lack of liquid and alerts the bar staff to order you a new drink.

 

The ice cube is 3D printed and also a hardware transmitter, with Bluetooth low energy connectivity to broadcast a notification to a nearby device. Two liquid sensors recognise when they are no longer submerged in the drink and trigger the order to be made. The ice cube is also kept cool as well as staying buoyant using Aerogel technology, which is build by Nasa.

 

The ice cube is also able to send the bar staff an idea of how far the empty drink is from the bar so it can be delivered to the customer. The ice cube could also be used to keep track of your alcohol consumption and also in the future be used to alert the drinker if their drink has been tampered with.
