OUR PATENTED SMART ILLUMINATION TECHNOLOGY. With the introduction of our patented, illumination technology, OLITUS is revolutionizing dispensing devices. Whether we’re designing an enhanced medicine delivery system or providing you with those small things that foster a great dining experience, we strive to combine beneficial solutions with a cool factor and touch of art . . . where, of course, it makes sense.

Other industries that we plan to work with on this technology whose customers will ultimately benefit from our illumination methodologies include: health and safety, outdoor recreation, petroleum and natural gas, military and police, construction, laboratory testing and research, and many, many others.

The first application of the patented, smart illumination technology is being applied to both the restaurant and residential markets using those all too familiar friends on the dining table – the salt and pepper shaker.

iiShakers incoporate revolutionary technology that use smart-sensors to determine if the iiShaker is moving and which direction it’s pointing. If the sensor detects that the iiShaker has been picked up, sidelights begin to glow bringing a never seen before ambiance to the dining experience. iiShakers contain a built-in, automated flashlight for that extra light that's needed to read the menu or the check, so no more grabbing for your cell phone or a burning candle. As the iiShaker is tipped for pouring, a top light is activated so you can see how much salt and pepper is being dispensed and where it's going.

iiShakers' enhanced functionality include a LifeShaker Sodium Alert System that actively monitors the time salt is being poured and once a programmed threshold is exceeded, the sidelights change color to amber and then to red to let you know that you may be using excessive amounts of salt. Another enhanced function, the ServerAlert System, flashes when activated to get your server's attention, so there's no longer a need to snap your fingers or wave your hands. Just tap iiShakers twice and the shaker goes into alert mode to let your server know your ready for the check or that next round of drinks.

iiShakers are always on the table and always ready for action. No buttons. No switches. You just pick them up and they work.
