Googler Creates the KegDroid, An Android Beer Serving Keg

By - Source: Mashable | B 16 comments

The cutest keg we've ever seen.

Google's got its hand in a lot of different markets but we never thought beer kegs was one of them. However, one creative Googler has made headlines for his very interesting creation: The KegDroid.

Named Betsy, Mashable reports that this KegDroid is the baby of Google employee Paul Carff, who has been brewing his own beer since 1991. Dubbed Betsy, the keg is controlled via an integrated Motorola Xoom running Ice Cream Sandwich. An app on the tablet authenticates the user via an NFC badge and allows you to select your choice of beer. It will also tell you how old the keg is and how cold the beer is. Now all it needs to do is tell us how we can get a Betsy of our own.

Check out the KegDroid for yourself in the video below:

    As far as I know the only people 'debating' that subject are demagogues. The real debate is if women should be getting their birth control paid for by the tax payers.

    0:10 drinking beer has become very boring for me. Get a life, a girl, a guy, a whatever. This is lame and only because it is about beer is your face being streamed to the world. Go invent something that the world actually needs nub.

    This will most likely get down-voted quickly, but it is really sad to me that people think something like this is actually new worthy.

    Really cool looking. I just wonder if it needs to be recharged 10 times a day like my droid phone. :D

    Maybe the uneducated in the U.S. do. For those who are educated, most of us know the political and economic situation that the rest of the world is in.
