The Plum wine dispenser prevents bottles from going bad, allowing hotel guests to drink and pay by the glass

Plum is a high-end connected appliance that can hold two open 750 ml wine bottles, keeping them as fresh as when first opened using an argon gas chamber. The product is also equipped with a camera and computer that can identify the particular varietal of a wine, providing information about the notes and winery, and allowing users to select the ideal preservation temperature.

Plum is available to consumers for $1,999, and is now being implemented in hotels, solving the problem of pricey minibar bottles that often go to waste for both hotels and travelers. Piercing a bottle through its foil and cork, Plum externally dispenses however much wine a user wishes to consume, letting hotel guests pay by the glass. The device could even permit hotels to keep small portions of wine ready to serve for weeks, saving money and wasted product.
