MEDEA, an ultra-premium vodka that’s distilled in Schiedman, Holland, and distributed through corporate headquarters in Pleasanton, California, regularly takes top awards in the Los Angeles International Spirits Competition and the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. And that’s just for its taste. MEDEA also enjoys distinction for its unique bottle: the only one in the world with a programmable LED message strip, which is design- and technology-patented. Users download the MEDEA app on their phones to program the bottle, and MEDEA uses Bluetooth iBeacon technology to allow a smart phone to wirelessly set and display scrolling messages. The bottles come equipped with six preset phrases which can be edited, including happy birthday, happy anniversary and congratulations. You can also program a personal message; say, the name of a company or its newly installed CEO. And once you input the message, it can be paired with multiple bottles through the app; each is programmed individually.
Perhaps your attendees have hopped on those electric bikes and e-scooters that are scattered all over metropolitan areas throughout California. That’s old news, no question. Yet it’s a sure bet they’ve never been on a Vintage Electric Cruz Bike, because only 250 of them ever have been made. Mad Dogs & Englishmen Bike Shop in Carmel has a fleet of these smile generators, as well as a fleet of knowledgeable guides to lead scenic group tours.
