It’s me, it’s me!

Facial recognition when out in public has always meant having the bartender remember me by tipping well early, and avoiding the pathetic arm waiving as a signal for another round.  

With the pandemic still lingering and folks becoming accustomed to imbibing at home, WineCab’s solution to both avoiding crowds and facial recognition seems both elegant and efficient.  And while the unit isn’t inexpensive, thinking of all that tip money saved helps offset the cost of the $180,000 in-home unit.

Keeping the kids out of the liquor cabinet has long been a running battle and the WineCab’s system solves both the problem of teenagers, or anyone unrecognized, hitting up your  1945 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Romanee-Conti, while simultaneously keeping the kids from slurping the “Two-Buck Chuck’, assuming you have that on hand for less discerning guests.

All that said, perhaps the most interesting, if not the most entertaining feature, of the WineCab’s dispensing system is it’s ability to make suggestions based on your past drinking choices, and it’s six-axis, high-speed robotic arm which can be programed to deliver the wine of your choice right to your hand.  To hell with lifting-stay-at-home orders, and one more reason to keep sheltering in place.
