360i creates a beer keg that twitters

July 24, 2009

The good folks at the digital agency 360i came up with a clever hack to make a beer tap that twitters. The tap is connected to an electronic Keg-Meter, which determines flow, and sends tweets whenever a beer is drawn. Awesome proof of concept, and an idea that lends itself to considerable punning:

This is the sort of cleverness that we need to see more of – embedding logic, sensors, and transmitters into different objects to see how this transforms our relationship with them.
