Instant Beer Refill
For Those Who Can’t Wait

i-Glass Auto Delivery



“Fill ’er up” no longer needed - another beer will soon be whisked to the table automatically thanks to a high-tech pint glass that tells bar staff when it needs refilling.

Developed by a Japanese electronics company, the intelligent glass is fitted with a radio-frequency coil in its base and emits a signal to a receiver set in the table when it's empty.

The iGlassware system, developed by Mitsubishi, works by coating each glass with a clear, conducting material, enabling it to measure exactly how much liquid has been sipped or guzzled.

When empty, the glass sends an electronic cry for more beer from the table to waiters equipped with handheld computers on frequencies similar to those used by mobile phones.
