This beer pouring Lego bot responds to a Pownce post. While not very practical, it is very cool! The video is more watchable if you mute it.

The night before Barcamp Nashville ’08 I tested the Inebriator for the fam. A little too much head (no jokes please) so I tuned it a little afterwards. Regardless, it WORKED! Basic idea Lego bot looks for new RSS updates from Pownce. When it sees a new update it reads it for the word “Pour”. If it finds it it triggers the bot to pour. The Pownce feed can then be updated from the iPhone Pownce app.
