iPhone-controlled LEGO contraption pours a beer on command

This, my friends, is what you call nerd catnip: a homemade LEGO contraption that, when controlled by an iPhone, pours a beer automatically. Yes, it contains so many elements of geek culture that it's almost a parody of itself: DIY projects, LEGO, iPhones, and beer. But it's not quite a parody of itself, so I love it. What can I say, I'm easy to please.

Basically, it's set to pour every time it sees the word "pour" in a Pownce RSS feed, so as long as there's a full beer and an empty glass there it'll work as advertised. Sure, it's a gimmick, but it sure is a fun gimmick.
