During the Global IoT day contest, one of the projects mentioned was an Imp controlled beer/soda tap. I think this is a great idea, and wanted to start a thread for brainstorming. I’m going to list some features that would be really cool to have. A similar project exists at kegbot.org.
* Tap/dispensing control with servo/solenoid/ect. * Glass sensor/scale (Would sense if a glass as under the tap and how full it was with tare.) * Flow volume monitor - Track how much volume remains, how much is dispensed. * Fridge temp & liquid temp. * Keg low alerts * Web/iOS/Android interface * Select glass size for automatic pour
Of course, this project will also need an ePaper display! Vanessa is coming soon!
