A tweeting kegerator! Why? So we can tell when the keg needs replacing, of course. We combine an Arduino with a magnetic reed switch and weight sensor to get our keg’s status available to our beer guru. Follow the SparkFunKeg on twitter.

    What a great idea! Your kegerator reminds you to refill. What’s next? A kegerator with a built in TV remote? .. or how about a kegerator with a foosball table built onto the side of it? .. the possibilities are endless!
