Robofun’s Beer Keyboard #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Great project shared at Webstock, the biggest blogging and social media event in Romania, created by Robofun:

Do you have any idea of what you get if you combine 44 beer cans with an Arduino board and a Raspberry PI ?

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).
And the surprise was fantastic! The user experience and engagement overcame any expectation. Every single person who attended Webstock tried the keyboard and participated in the contest.

Behind the scene, the system is built around an Arduino board and a few capacitive controllers (just like the ones which are inside smartphones’ touch screens), connected to a Raspberry PI board which controls the plasma screen display.
