So this idea has been floating around my head for awhile, but I'm not quite sure the best way to implement it.
I have a couple old cell phones that I have collected over the years (and we are at that point where we could upgrade our current phones soon...) and I always thought it would be cool to repurpose one for something brewing related. I have seen the TV Tap Handles - but from what I can tell they just display a picture or slideshow. That would be easy enough to do, but I want to see if there are any ideas to take it further.
I'm thinking maybe a tap handle that plays a sound when it dispenses beer. I would need some kind of program to sense the motion and then play a sound file - I'm not sure if any app like that currently exists.
Or maybe a way for it to keep track of how many pours I dispense. Again, it would need a way to keep track of the motion of the tap handle.
I already use one of my old cell phones to store all of my music. I could make it be a jukebox/tap handle, connected through bluetooth to a nearby speaker.
I think it would be kind of fun to use at beerfests or parties - it's probably not super practical for every day use.
Any other ideas? Or any ideas of apps that have a function that would work well in tap-handle format?
