I would have used an American beer if I could have found one but the only mini Keg I could find was Heineken. 'I was watching Star Wars and noticed that R2D2 was sort of keg shaped and sized. My roommate and I thought it would be funny to build a Keg R2D2, or RBrewD2, that drive itself around.
In the hilarious clip, the robot can be seen running from room to room while dispensing Heineken beer and refilling cups 'So I went out and got a mini Keg and started tinkering. After a couple of hours we ended up with the frame and over the next couple of days we had a functioning beer bot just in time for the super bowl. 'The whole night we served anyone who asked for a beer by driving the robot out of the kitchen to them so they could pour themselves a beer, although it was all shaken up so the beer was very foamy. 'I built it out of spare metal parts and motors leftover from previous projects. The electronic speed controllers were from RC cars and the RC receiver I borrowed from an RC plane I built.
'I have not built a beer robot before, however I do have a good amount of experience with robotics. 'I am currently working on building an autonomous version of him then we will move up to full sized R2D2 with full Keg for a body.'

Flake's amendment comes two years after the Defense Department and the National Science Foundation provided in grants to a project at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab at MIT.
Those grants were only a part of the total budget. The project used to pick up and move beers around, handing them to two other 'turtle bots,' equipped with coolers, that acted as waiters. The waiters, which could not communicate with one another unless they were in close proximity, traveled between rooms in an MIT lab, taking orders from people and getting beers from the bartender bot.
