HaDuino: An Arduino That Opens Beer Bottles


This is a funny joke project by Brian Benchoff of Hackaday, an Arduino with a bottle opener shape cut into the PCB. It has a sweet pixellated HaD logo on the back, and the front sports a disclaimer urging users not to use it as a bottle opener, and in fact it broke instantly when used as one. (Never mind the advisibility of using a PCB with lead solder around a beverage…)

While I might have detected a tinge of noob-hostility in the project, to his credit Brian is sharing the source, so I guess the HaDuino ultimately is what you make of it. So, how would you change it up?
