iPhone's Accelerometer Translates Virtual Pour Into Real-World Beer

The drinkin' tinkerers over at Instructables created the Serv O'Beer to interpret a "pouring" motion with an iPhone into a real, albeit foamy, beer. What an age we live in!


Creator "Polymythic" used a Construx building set as his mechanical base and an ioBridge to control the system. It pours the beer a bit violently, just like this previous hack, but if you're drunk enough to insist that tipping your iPhone should result in a real beer, it should do you just fine.

I prefer my Stella with zero head. Liquid right to the rim of the glass.

I want to have to take my first sip with the glass on the bar because it's brimming with beery goodness.

Foam, shmoam..
