Put a bunch of tech-savvy inventors and a beer fridge in the same room and something interesting is bound to happen. The guys at Milwaukee Makerspace take their beer, or at least their beer security, seriously. They've rigged their beer refrigerator with an RFID reader and use their key fobs to control access. They also track who's drinking, and how much. A display screen even welcomes the visitor.
Look like a fun project for a bunch of hackers and inventors. But rest assured, visitors to the Musings abode simply need to grasp the fridge door handle and pull to open.
