Submission + - Raspberry Pi-powered beer keg pours you a hands-free pint (theinquirer.net)

llebeel writes: The INQUIRER: A New York City start-up named Robokeg has showed off a Raspberry Pi and NFC-powered beer keg prototype.

Made up of "three lazy hackers", Robokeg demoed the gadget at the New York Tech Meetup (NYTM) event on Tuesday, offering up some hands-free beer service via a Raspberry Pi PC, which acts as the brain of the machine with 3D-printed parts covering the brawn.

Robokeg said it could one day act as a vending machine at festivals when you don't have your wallet, or in clubs to reduce queue times at the bar. Watch for it at your local pub.
