Coca-Cola has designed a “Selfie bottle” that will take your self-portrait which you can instantly share with your friends on online platforms like SnapChat, Facebook and Instagram.
The bottle is fitted with an in-built camera at its base and a sensor to detect when it is tilted to 70-degree, at which point the camera takes a snap of its owner mid-drink, Drum News reported on Friday.
The “Selfie Bottle” has been devised by Gefen Team for the Coca-Cola Summer Love campaign — Israel’s largest outdoor brand event.
“Users tag themselves and their friends in photos on Coca-Cola’s social media assets. It really does the trick and makes the partygoers more present and active during the event, knowing they can share their special moments just by drinking,” Coca-Cola said in a statement.
However, there are no reports when the “Selfie Bottle” will make it to the market.
While we are on the topic, according to a recent research India leads in the numbers of deaths happened due to selfies. There were 127 selfie related deaths, with the first incident happening in March 2014. Since then, 76 people in India have died trying to take a selfie. All other countries have single digit numbers. Pakistan comes in a distant second at 9 deaths, USA has 8 and 6 people have died in Russia.
