The Beer Keyboard is a creation comprised of 40 full beer cans made into the typographic keys of a computer. The beverage keypad works using an Arduino controller that is receptive to touch and made to look like a square keyboard. It is connected to a plasma screen television using a Raspberry PI computer.

The Beer Keyboard is fully functional and uses Staropramen as the beverage of choice since it was designed by the Prague brewery. Those who were fascinated by the booze invention were able to touch the keys to enter their email addresses into a draw to win a trip to Prague. The quirky keys made an appearance at the Webstock conference in Bucharest. Stats for Quirky Booze-Typing Keypads Trending: Older & Mild
