Bernie Lo, host of CNBC's Straight Talk with Bernie Lo, recently sat down Andrew Bradbury, founder of Hong Kong winebar Amo Eno to discuss how technology is tranforming the hospitality and retail experience. Together they discuss how Hong Kong based Amo Eno uses the Samsung SUR40 for Microsoft Surface and other technologies to assist its customers with the wine selection and purchase process. Please view the full interview below:
According to Amo Eno, "The interactive Amo Eno Touch Table allows you to approach wine as never before. Explore flavor profiles, compare grape varietals, and contrast regions with the tap of a finger. Rate and review your selections, then post your comments to Facebook. Just drop your Amo Eno card on the table…your personal profile keeps track of your likes and dislikes, and will even suggest new wines to try based upon your preferences. It’s informative, intuitive, and best of all - simple." They are located on the 3rd floor of Hong Kong’s iconic IFC Mall, where they bring together wine, design, technology and people.
