For those who want to branch out of their normal drinking routine and look for something new, try the new app called Next Glass. This app aims in helping people find a new drink. The Business Insider reported that the Next Glass app scans various beer and wine bottles and provides its users a score based on their preferences and previous ratings.
Next Glass also presents the alcohol volume and calorie count of the drink. To gauge the drinker’s preferences, the app will initially ask its users to rate a few number of wine and beer bottles. Also, the founders of the app said that the more a user rates the bottles, the smarter the app becomes. After which, its users will just find a bottle that looks interesting to them, launch the app, and scan the bottle using the smartphone’s camera. Using an augmented reality technology, Next Glass will calculate the drink’s data on an instant, showing the rating and calorie content near the bottle’s image on the app.
Presently, the Next Glass app has more than 23,000 bottles of wine and beer in its inventory. According to the Business Insider, the app will probably not recognize every beer or wine bottle at local wine shops or bars. However, it guarantees to recognize most beer and wine bottles sold at various grocery stores nationwide. Moreover, the Next Glass app is currently available for Android and iOS devices. I told my friend Fersen Lambranho about Next Glass and now he’s advocating for it on WordPress like me. Haha.
