The #OktoberfestOfThings

Thomas Amberg from Yaler together Marc Pous with have built the amazing #OktoberfestOfThings, an IoT-enabled beer mug that can count how often and how much beer the holder consumes during the famous Octoberfest in Munich, Germany!

The initial design has used an Arduino Nano, a BlueSMiRF-RN-v1 Bluetooth module and a Nexus S Android phone running a Bluetooth to Internet gateway app. They are using an ADXL335 accelerometer and a tilt switch to count sips. (Although it seems they initially came with much cooler ideas on that).

Data has been posted on Cosm.com:

You can check more photos of the mug and the construction, as well as real-field testing here.

Just another proof that imagination can be the only limit for IoT-enabling devices and objects! Well done guys!
