Serv O’Beer is a project showing you step by step how to turn a bottle of beer using Construx, servo, and an ioBridge module. The system uses the accelerometer feedback to turn the servo controlling the position of the bottle. Enjoy the perfect pour while taking out all of the physically demanding work. Happy New Year and Cheers!

    One improvement would be to reduce the head’s volume by about, I dunno, 75% or 80%?

    Also, during a party I can see someone misjudging where to place the glass, to party-foul results; perhaps a “landing pad” would be a nice integration for spot-on targeting?

    I’d like to see one of those IR distance-sensing faucets hacked to serve draft beer.

    that is _not_ a perfect pour.

    just sayin’.

    Sigh… I loved Construx as a kid. I bought my fiance a Mindstorms kit for Xmas, I might have to break out my old Legos just for fun.
