Guinness has managed to make pouring beer a social. Introducing the new QR Code Glass. Pour the stout into the glass, and the QR code is visible. Use a lighter color beer, and it doesn’t work. The only design flaw? As pointed out by virtually everyone seeing the code – won’t it work for any dark beer?
The glass is hard working. Scan the code with your smart phone and it does everyone from tweets about your pint, updates your Facebook status (hey! I’m drunk again!), checks you into Foursquare, downloads coupons, and launches a special Guinness website. Now if could only get that pretty lady’s phone number at the bar, it could the the best pint of beer ever.
