Intel has partnered with them, too.

IoT sinks. Yes, really!

WatchfulEye:
It's been a while since I did any bar work, but way back when we used to use automatic dishwashers. Dirty glasses went in. Clean, dry and sanitised glasses came out.

I'm not sure what problem this is supposed to solve.

Taking money from investors.
Giving some (albeit questionable here) visibility to Intel's AI solutions.
Getting people used to everything being connected. Toilets are next.

In my country bars tend to have two sinks, you dunk the glass on a set of brushes in soapy water then flush it in a sink with clean water. The glasses come out wet, which doesn't matter because beer is tapped over the top and then wiped flat with a blade any way. The clear sink is being continually filled from the bottom and overflowing into a pipe at the top, the soapy one generally not. Dunno what the third is for, maybe another flush to get it extra clean for American standards? A system which monitors the use of all the sinks and which automatically keeps the water fresh seems somewhat useful, one less thing for the alcoholic behind the bar to pay attention to.

The Intel angle is probably just because they used Quark for a microcontroller.
