UNCW/CSB Alumni To Launch New Product That Promotes Personal Safety

Brio Coaster (photo: New Potato Technologies)May 26: New Potato Technologies will be launching their latest product, the Brio Coaster, to the Wilmington community in June. Worked on by a team including four UNCW alumni (Chris Sumner, James Smith, Alan Linz and Amanda Harman) and two Cameron School of Business alumnae (Kellie McLiverty and Corinne Conto, IMBA), this 'smart' coaster is designed to alert you via your phone if someone tampers with your drink while you're away from it.

Besides keeping your beverage safe, the coaster and app are designed to get people interacting with each other by allowing you to rate local venues and even play games. "We want people to go out and have fun, but be safe about what they’re doing," McLiverty said. "So that they’re not just leaving their drinks with a stranger."
