What is it about global middle-management gatherings?
Swissies, Swedies, Frogs, Gerries, Limeys, Yanks dining cheerfully.
The mixed up etiquette of the pre-prandial cheers, bottoms up, santé, prost, skål.
People reaching across to clink glasses from one end of the table to another.
the influence, it's difficult to remember if you've already clinked and more importantly it's just not scalable.
I propose the Remote Clinking Hub.
A central unit - probably an iPhone app - connects using Bluetooth to miniature clinkers that fit over the rim of each glass. The clinkers include battery powered hammerettes that clink the glasses at the right moment.
Right moments are configurable of course, but normally, the right moment is when the glass is raised, accelerometers detect the act, clink the holder's glass and transmit the clink to the central hub.
The other clinkers receive the instruction and clink remotely.
Hours of scalable etiquette unmixing satisfaction.
