Revolutions start small
Wiino is the first thermometer of its kind. It includes a flexible steel helix ring that adjusts to any bottle's neck diameter, a sponge ring to absorb spills, and a sensor within a milled aluminum case. The sensor, activated when separated from the ring, detects the wine temperature using a specialized algorithm, displaying it on an LCD screen in just 3 seconds. Afterward, it can be magnetically reattached to the ring until the wine reaches the desired temperature for tasting. After six months of work, several prototypes and some initial discussions with potential incubators, the project never really took off and went back to the idea's drawer.
