What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

What is SmartPourer?

SmartPourer is a device that calculates and limits the amount of alcohol consumed. This data is stored in the cloud of a specially developed app. Good health is life’s greatest blessing, and our goal is to preserve it. SmartPourer allows you to take control of your drinking life.

Keep detailed track of the the amount of alcohol you consume, get current information about your consumption, and protect yourself from excessive drinking. SmartPourer’s “time to drive” function lets you know when it is safe to get behind the wheel.

Spend quality time with your friends and family playing games and mixing great craft cocktails. SmartPourer ensures your safety and comfort. Enjoy yourself with peace of mind!

How it works?

SmartPourer is an easy-to-use device. Simply install the app on your mobile phone and authorize it with your Facebook account. Remove the cork from the bottle, replacing it with the NFC Smart Cork. Put the SmartPourer in and then just place your phone or any NFC-equipped device to the SmartPourer to make it active. SmartPourer connects and synchronizes with your phone via Bluetooth. After that, the app will monitor and control the amount of alcohol you drink with SmartPourer.

The device is absolutely airtight, so there will be no loss of quality to the beverage. All data is sent autonomously from the server to the app.

What makes SmartPourer special?

Keep track of events: SmartPourer stores statistics about your alcohol consumption and displays them on a safety diagram.

Drink responsibility: SmartPourer keeps track of your condition and alerts you if you are likely to become intoxicated.

 Serve the perfect cocktail anytime: SmartPourer takes mixing cocktails at home to the next level. The device provides recipes, identifies poured alcohol, and measures the correct proportions.

Throw a great party: The SmartPourer app contains drinking games and quizzes that will liven up your party.

“Time To Drive” function: Smart Pourer will let you know about the time you can get behind the wheel safely and drive anywhere you need in comfort.

Tech Specs

SmartPourer web application

SmartPourer is not just a device that controls your consumption of alcohol. It also takes care of your health. Grab your opportunity to be part of the beta test for $1 on Kickstarter.

You will be able to input data about alcohol consumed, and control your health and blood-alcohol levels. You can also connect with your friends by creating groups and keeping track of their statistics. Different drinking conditions are set as default in the application. Select the one you like, and the device will automatically calculate the alcohol dosage for the chosen option.

 Set the time when you are planning to get behind the wheel, and SmartPourer will tell you how much you can safely drink. When you get close to the limit, the application will suggest that you to stop drinking.

 You can also use SmartPourer as a dispenser to control alcohol dosages. SmartPourer keeps track of the drinks in your home bar, meaning you will never run out of your favorite beverages.

 The SmartPourer mobile app also includes various alcohol-related games and quizzes. A great source of entertainment for you and your friends, SmartPourer will liven up any party!

SmartPourer Development and The Team

The idea behind SmartPourer was taken from sport. In basketball (I am a big fan) it is very important to track statistics during the game. My friends and I were using “shot tracker” to record important data during games. Playing a friendly game one day, the thought struck me: “What if there was some kind of app or device that could count alcohol “shots”?” After doing some research, I discovered there was nothing like this currently on the market, at which point I came with the idea for SmartPourer.

I put a team together, and we started work on the design. We studied thousands of bar pourers, hundreds of transducers, and dozens of different hardware and software development approaches. The SmartPourer prototype is the fruit of all these efforts.

Rewards

Why we need your help

We want our device to be available for everyone. We want to adjust mass production and make a unique software product that is using BigData and Machine Learning for the improvement of “drinking” culture.

We also plan to decrease device’s price and that way help to develop “drinking responsibility” among customers.

In the future we are planning to implement a customized replenishment of your home bar with just a couple of swipes in your phone.

As we plan an open API for our app, there are more and more games to come. We want to make the entertainment more diverse to keep our users happy and healthy at the same time.

Our mission

Alcohol is the twenty-first century’s silent epidemic. Drinking shouldn’t be a lifestyle or an addiction; it should always be done in moderation, as a form of relaxation and entertainment. SmartPourer was created to protect users from excessive drinking, keep them healthy, and entertain them at the same time.

SmartPourer is your safety, comfort and fun!

Risks and challenges

We have worked extremely hard to improve our prototype. However, hardware technologies always involve certain risks.
One of the difficulties that we faced relates to certification for different markets, as the SmartPourer cork interacts with the beverages. Unforeseen production delays may occur, as we need to find a good manufacturing partner to make our product to the highest standards. Our device must be leak-proof, and display outstanding performance with slow-running liquids. The programming aspect may also involve some complications. NFC-tag emulation with mobile phones is a sophisticated process, as it must match a great number of mobile platforms and support both recent and older versions.
Quality control is our main focus, and we promise to keep you updated regarding the process and all related issues. We are confident that the devices will be shipped to backers according to the indicated timeline. In case of any delays, we will communicate openly and promptly with all parties involved.
