Watch online movie just by tapping beer bottle on your gadget
How about tapping an empty beer bottle to your mobile device or laptop and in return getting to watch a cool movie? Does that sound realistically impossible? Then you ought to be surprised as Aleksandr Semenov, the CEO of Russian design studio Heads and Hands has come up with a unique way to unlock movies that otherwise cannot be viewed. Taking advantage of Bluetooth beacon technology dubbed as iBeacon in conjunction with Movie Unlocker app, the movie can be unlocked by bringing the Grolsch beer bottle near your Bluetooth enabled devices. People who drink Grolsch beer with the embedded beacon under the cap emits a Bluetooth signal and sends a request to the server to unlock the movie.
The promotional campaign does sound interesting and Aleksandr says that he can’t believe this technology would be used in such a way. Now he has plans to take this technology to pizza selling too. How that would work out still remains to be seen. In the meanwhile you enjoy some more pictures of the technology.
