MIT has created a hi-tech wine glass that glows warmly when a distant partner picks it up or takes a sip. The glasses incorporate LEDs, liquid sensors and wireless links in a pair of glass tumblers. The glasses could be anywhere in the world and you would get the feeling as if you were sharing a drink. When one person picks up a glass it causes their partner’s red LED to glow gently in the glass. When either person puts the glass to their lips, sensors make white LEDs on the rim of the other glass glow brightly. The technology could also be used in hospitals to ensure that patients are drinking enough water.
