Americus-- Georgia Southwestern students are developing some very tasteful software.

This is the Robert Parker Wine Kiosk. To use it, all you have to do is scan a bottle of wine, and everything you would want to know about the wine pops up on the screen. Robert Parker is considered the world's foremost authority on fine wines, and he's lending his name to this GSW project.

Joao Clementi, who started work on the project before he graduated in May, says, "I didn't know much about wines or anything, but as they said, Robert Parker is very important, the world's most foremost wine critic. It's very exciting working on something that is huge."

On October 1st, these wine kiosks will be installed at Harry's Food Stores in Atlanta for a trial run. Eventually, the wine kiosks could be sold nationwide. There's information on more than 60,000 wines in the database.
