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.
In addition it rings up the "correct" price for that particular pour .
I know some of the liquor being served at slot machines is a measured pour , but I had complained to Trop ( Tango's Lounge )that their measured pour sours from the guns ( topped off with club soda ) were terrible ! And they couln't add a bit more liquor without charging for another shot !
What's next ? Counting the ice cubes ? !
