CNvest held its first conference in San Jose, California and awarded a $10,000 prize to the pitch contest winner The Peak Beyond. The Peak Beyond is a developer of interactive smart tables for cannabis retail spaces.
What makes the tables unique is the intelligent object-recognition capabilities and integrated point of sale system. A customer can place any product from the store’s display inventory onto the table, follow clickable pathways to learn more through text and video, and purchase items on the spot.
The goal is to provide consumers with the educational benefit of a digital patient consultant with the pleasure of enjoying a self-guided museum tour. While the technology can be applied to any retail market, This company seeks to capitalize on the California legalization movement to prepare for the surge of new consumers who may not be informed about the industry or its products.
