The Beer Keyboard Powered by Arduino and Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi's price point makes it ideal for mucking around with new projects and whacky experiments that you might not want to sink a lot of money or a lot of hardware into. A perfect example of this was seen at the Webstock 2012 conference, where Romanian open source hardware shop Robofun created a beer keyboard.

 

They used 40 beer cans connected to an Arduino-powered touch capacitive controller forming a keyboard. They then linked it to a plasma display via Raspberry Pi. To show off the project, Robofun had folks enter their email addresses to be in with a chance to win a trip to Prague. Check out the video of the keyboard in action down below:
