evan jensen sent us a link to his basic stamp kegerator. the microcontroller monitors and regulates the temperature, and outputs status information and the name of the current beer to an lcd display. this looks like a fun project if you are looking to get started with hacking electronics. for our non beer drinkers, i can assure you that root beer is also best served cold and from a tap.
i’ve never used a basic stamp before, but i’ve noticed that a lot of other people are using the microprocessor to do cool things, including james the weather ballon hacker from earlier this week. i just ordered a starter kit last evening, so if people are interested maybe i can post an introduction when i receive it.
