The Story of HIC

Today technology is crippling real, human interactions. So we got thinking: how do we use technology to bring people together, to connect them in a real way? And HIC was born. A unique blend of technology and human emotions. A mix-o-bot that brings people together using mixology and a whole lot of fun!

Who is it for?

HIC is for everyone. The young and the old. The connoisseurs and the teetotallers. The tech-savvy and the non-tech savvy. HIC can grace all kinds of occasions: from conferences to concerts! It can up the fun quotient in restaurants, pubs, and lounges by playing Cupid and helping strangers break the ice. It is just right for beverage brands and can also partner with brands who want to:

a. Strengthen their associations with technology
b. Create large-scale engagement for young consumers
c. Do something innovative
