Deutsche Telekom debuts smart counter for drinking glasses

Monday 20 March 2017 | 10:27 CET | News
Deutsche Telekom has partnered with glass manufacturer Rastal to produce a digital bar counter with intelligent glasses. Introduced at CeBit, the digital system networks glasses with the bar counter. The Smartglass has an integrated chip containing information about the glass capacity, drink type and time and place of dispensing. When the glass is placed on the smart counter, a sensor in the counter reads the information and sends it via an integrated SIM card to the Telekom Cloud of Things.
