These interactive bottles have 50 separate components and sensors, including LED lights, that transform beer bottles into connected gadgets that respond to the beat of club music and mirror its rhythms, allowing “every bottle to become a part of the party.” When the bottle is tipped back for a drink, the lights flicker, “cheers” another bottle, then fade when no one is touching it. When enjoying a Heineken brew, the Ignite bottle surely contributes to a memorable customer experience.
