Staropramen, one of the sponsors of the event asked us for an innovative way to offer a trip to Prague to one of the event’s guests.”-“So, we came up with a keyboard made out of 44 Staropramen beer cans. Each beer can was a key, and whenever someone touched it, the corresponding letter appeared on a large plasma screen (just like any regular computer keyboard).”
The keyboard was built using a Arduino board together with a fuel capacity of controllers, which is then being connected to a Raspberry Pi mini computer. The unique beer can keyboard was created by Robofun Create a Romanian company specialising in creating unique technology.
