Heineken Ignite: Heineken’s first interactive beer bottle. Heineken embraces the start-up culture of experimentation because it knows that invention never sleeps. The brand understands that the best ‘user experiences’ tap into existing consumer behaviors and push technology into the background. The intent of the Heineken Ignite project was to develop an idea that would create a memorable Heineken experience unlocking the power and possibilities of mobile innovation and technology. Heineken believes that mobile innovation could offer a much more rewarding experience than just an app and embraced the challenge to think about how the product could be leveraged as an interface to the brand experience. A prototype of Heineken Ignite will be revealed on 9 April at Milan Design Week as part of Heineken’s Lounge of the Future concept. Heineken takes its promise to “open your world” even further with the Heineken Ignite project, enhancing the organic way in which the product is used based on social interaction between beer drinkers. This innovative approach lets people be a part of the party in a whole new way and opens up possibilities in social situations.
