Didn't really know where to put this one, but since it relates to a keg I went here



Pretty good use of technology

I just came upon this invention from a long time homebrewer. Super cool automated two-tap kegerator using an Android tablet app, solenoids, and flow meters to serve various volumes of beer.

Is this one of you guys? Frackin' genius!


(skip to ~3:10 if you don't care about the technical aspect and just want to see it in action)

As neat as it is, I gotta admit I don't really see the point in it. Wouldn't it be just as easy to release the tap handle to stop the flow? I guess that's why they call them gadgets and not necessities though.

Same. It doesn't seem terribly useful, unless there's a layer of the software that sends the person a bill for the beer they took or something.

As something installed in the Android Developer Kit offices at the Googleplex, though, that would be pretty cool.
