It’s a dilemma of the computer age: you’re on a zombie killing spree in the virtual world while in the real one your beer mug has run dry? What to do? Do you really have to pause the action to hunt down another beer? Not anymore. At a consumer electronics convention in Las Vegas this week, electronics firm Nvidia unveiled the so-called KEGputer. Yep, it’s a beer keg and a computer rolled into one.
From Nvidia’s Kris Rey:
This mod is a blissful marriage of a 15.5 gallon keg and a liquid cooled GeForce GTX gaming PC. Did I mention that it has a fully functional beer dispensing system? Thanks to Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. we were able to develop a solution to install a 2.5 gallon mini keg with an integrated refrigeration system and in-line Co2 pump into the KEGputer. With it, you can pour ice-cold beer without the need of pesky beer pumps or giant tubs of ice.
Don’t get too excited, though. The KEGputer is a one of the kind that cost its inventor almost $5,000 to produce. Nvidia plans to auction it off at the conclusion of the convention.
