Das Bot is a system for monitoring and controlling access to beer through RFID tags. Built on top of an internet-connected Arduino, the system accepts an RFID tag, checks to make sure you’re registered, opens the solenoid valves in the beer lines, lets you pour a beer and monitors how much you’ve poured, saves the data to a database, and prints out a receipt. Oh, and there’s prize badges you can win as well. There were three beers on tap this year (a homebrewed Dunkelweizen, a homebrewed Hefeweizen, and a Hofbrauhaus Oktoberfest) and each beer was tracked independently.
