Using Nerves to Build a Facial Recognition-Powered Beer Kiosk System

We used Nerves to build the world's first self-serve beer kiosk powered by facial recognition technology.

Hop is the world’s first beer kiosk to use automated facial recognition to verify identification, allowing users to purchase beer by the ounce and pour it themselves.  Las Vegas-based Adult Beverage Co. (ABC) engaged Very, an IoT development firm and Nerves sponsor, to build the proprietary software and hardware that powers Hop, which made its debut on the Vegas Strip. Very used the Nerves Platform and NervesHub to build Hop’s robust kiosk system and support the devices that make the transactions possible. 

Hop asks first-time users to enter basic personal information, scan an image of their legal ID, take a few facial recognition reference photos, and swipe their credit card. When pouring a beer, a photo is taken at the tap and compared to the user’s reference images, giving a match rating out of 100%.

A bartender onsite reviews the rating and approves or denies service. On future visits, customers will be automatically recognized — which means all they have to do is approach the kiosk, choose a tap, and pour their beer.

Our clients are looking for a partner as driven as they are

I’d recommend Very in a heartbeat to anyone seeking a cutting-edge IoT development team. The level of skill, flexibility, and dedication they brought to the project was unparalleled, and I felt completely engaged throughout the process.
