VinTouché is a prototype of a sensor embedded wine glass that tells you appropriate way to hold it. There are a lot of ways to hold a wine glass depending on the glass shapes or situations, and it is hard to tell proper holding style among them. Vin Touche let you understand the correct way of holding the glass.
When a user hold VinTouché with wine in it, the embedded touch sensor recognizes how it is holded by the user’s hand, and tells them it is correct or not. The sensing technology follows Touché, which makes a wine glass itself a capacitive touch sensor and enables it to classify your holding style with machine learning technique.
