What a great way to keep your homebrew cool while surfing HBT. I wonder if a pint glass would fit.....

The unit is powered via the USB port on the computer.

Six volts USB and a peltier device - the opposite of the coffee cup warmer - at the six volts and relatively low amperage available at the USB, I doubt there's any heavy-duty cooling going on........

Skol!

And I thought I had a lot of gadgets around my house!

So, can you monitor your cold beverage from another room, see if it is still ready for you to drink?

I personally like the old fashioned set-up: "Oh no, my beer has gotten too warm while I was surfing. I guess I had better drink it quickly and go get another one..."
