This past weekend I started writing a blog post about kegerators (bar fridges with a tap system to serve draft beer in your home) and was just finishing up when an article started circulating around the web that puts my personal kegerator to shame…
Developers at Google have built KegDroid – an automated beer dispensing system, perfect for any beer lover. Simply scan-in with your ID card, select the beer you want and choose your serving size. The KegDroid takes care of the pour!
If you check out the video link at the bottom of this post, you will see that it isn’t quite a perfect pint and has far too much head, but with a little tinkering this is an easy fix. This unit puts the system I have in my kitchen to shame, but it is something to aspire towards.
For anyone interested in kegerators, stay tuned for my upcoming post on something a bit more realistic for the everyday beer drinker at home.
