Because it’s the weekend before Memorial Day weekend, here’s a compilation video of unusual ways to open beer bottles. Maybe you’ll learn something you can use to impress your friends next weekend while you’re all getting drunk and grilling or whatever the hell people with friends do on Memorial Day. Sadly, I lost my last friend over a year ago. “To drugs?” No, to being an @$ $ hole. But enough about that dickbag, we’re here to talk about beer. I like opening my bottles the way I imagine farmers kill chickens: cutting their heads off with a ninja sword then drinking the blood to ensure a bountiful fall harvest. Can you tell I was home sick on farm field trip day? Sucks too because a kid on the bus told me they witnessed a goat orgy and our teacher was freaking out about it and the farmer was all, “Aw miss, they’s just bonin’.”

This is a video of some dudes demonstrating their custom built, 24-bottle bottle opener on a case of beer. Unfortunately for them, it leaves four unopened, underwhelming audiences worldwide and causing at least one blogger to question if we’ll ever be able to open 24 beers at once. Still, I’m going to need it or one like it to open all the beer bottles at the club I’m opening. It’s called, ‘GW’s Drink Alone Club’. It’s really like two clubs in one because after eight it turns into ‘GW’s Drink Alone In The Dark Club’. Sometimes a friend or neighbor will come over too but I’ll just be really quiet until they stop knocking and go away.

While the Raspberry Pi is great for educating kids about computing, can it brew a mean beer? The BeagleBone Black can. Trevor Hubbard, an engineer at Texas Instruments, uses the new, next-gen board to control heat exchangers and monitors to handle beer temperature remotely.
The board itself is quite cool. It runs a AM335x 1GHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor with graphics accelerator and has two 46-pin headers for IO, making it ideal for monitoring and robotics. The board itself costs $ 45 and is available now.
It can run Android and Ubuntu linux and connects to the Internet via Ethernet or a USB Wi-Fi dongle. Interestingly, the entire board is open source, allowing you to download and tweak the design to suit your needs.
The company was founded by Jason Kridner and Gerald Coley, two TI engineers. The headers allow for multiple styles of input and output including serial connectivity, timers, and digital I/O. While not as inherently simple as the Raspberry Pi, it’s still a formidable board.
Hubbard, who recorded a video about his project, shows how he can control his beer temperature remotely using a BeagleBoard, the Internet, and a taste for bubbly hops. There is, I’d wager, not much more a man could ask for.

Welcome to The After Mathematics, where we try to summarize this week’s tech news with numbers, decimal places and percentages
In a bid to nicely conclude this week’s occasions, we gaze at some expensive 4K gear at NAB 2013, identify whether we can physically … pocket either of Samsung’s Galaxy Huge variants and think about lasers: sometimes stunning, occasionally harmful and in some cases battling the future battle against drones. We’ve got the numbers– and a few dollar signs– right after the break.
This is the leather and chainmail beer koozie crafted by DeviantARTist DougFungus. It’s perfect for when you’re at a party and somebody asks which beer is yours so you can say, “Take a guess — but keep in mind I’m dressed like a knight, so that’s a hint.” Then, under your breath, “Dumbass.” I actually went to a party over the weekend except nope, no I didn’t, I was just trying to sound cool and holy shit that did not work out AT ALL.

Because drinking beer is actually the least fun thing about beer pong, arcade manufacturer Bay Tek Games is releasing Beer Pong Master, a beer pong arcade game with zero alcohol. So…it’s not really beer pong is it? It’s just pong. Jk jk, just a waste of a dollar.
Normal beer pong mechanics are in play here, but you have a set amount of time (our machine was registered at 60-second games) to sink as many balls in the still-lit cups as possible. All 10 cups begin completely lit at the start of the timer, and once your first ball connects to the rim of any cup, the clock begins winding down until you’ve sunk a ball in every cup and dimmed all the lights, or 60 seconds has passed, whichever comes first
Man, this kind of makes me want to go play carnival games. Yeah, and I’m gonna win a big prize — none of those small or medium stuffed animals for me. I’m gonna be the guy carrying the GIANT BEAR. Fun fact: did you know that nobody ever actually wins the big stuffed animals at amusement parks and the people you see walking around with them are just employees paid to do that? Well that’s true and don’t even try to say you’ve won one or know somebody who has because that makes you a dirty liar.

The Last Barfighter is an arcade game designed for Huge Employer Brewing Company by the McKinney Ten Percent ad agency. It’s a two-player dealing with game that takes place in a biker bar (fantastic place for fights btw) and rewards the winner with a cup loaded with beer. God I enjoy playing games for beer. Rock-paper-scissors for a forty?
Beer-thirsty combatants can do battle with an option of 5 characters, all called after Huge Supervisor brews. After three rounds of extreme fisticuffs, fire throwing and unicorn horn impaling, the winner’s cup is fulled of a sample of beer from a keg placed within the equipment.
Are you thinking exactly what I’m thinking? “Play two players on your own and then just let one stand there while you pummel them for a free beer?” Damn yeah! However seriously, do not touch the controls or I’ll eliminate you.
Struck the jump for a video of the game in action.

Forget prize tickets or high scores. The minds at McKinney creative agency may have come up with the greatest reward for arcade victors — an ice cold pour of beer. Created as a marketing tool for Big Boss Brewing Company, the aptly named Beercade features The Last Barfighter, a Street Fighter-like arcade game set inside a biker bar. To begin, two players place their cups in the tray below their respective tap, which replaces the machine’s coin slots. Beer-thirsty combatants can do battle with a selection of five characters, all named after Big Boss brews. After three rounds of intense fisticuffs, fire throwing and unicorn horn impaling, the winner’s cup is filled with a sample of beer from a keg placed within the machine. Don’t believe us? You can click past the break for a video of the machine in action.

Because drinking and watching TV go hand and hand like two best friend on a playground skipping to the swing set, HBO has licensed the rights to make a Game of Thrones beer to the Ommegang brewery in upstate New York. The beer, which will taste like the blood of your enemies, doesn’t actually taste like the blood of your enemies (unless your enemies are pils, honey, aroma malts, red wheat, grains of paradise and lemon peel) and is 6.5% alcohol by volume. That seems a little weak for a beer that’s supposed to be paying homage to Game of Thrones. A REAL Game of Thrones beer should be brewed with dragon tears and be a minimum of 26% alcohol. “And have teeth in the bottle.” TWO SCOOPS OF MOLARS.
Thanks to my buddy Terry, who drinks at least six Sierra Nevadas a day sitting around playing Civilization V. “The dream.” Some people live it. Not Terry though. No, not Terry.

This is a wooden pirate chest built around an Igloo beer cooler by redditor ShutUpLori (seriously Lori — I can barely hear myself think) for his boss. What kind of boss asks you to mod a cooler into a pirate chest is beyond me, but they sound like a pretty good one. My old boss was always asking me to do lame work like pick his kids from school and stuff like that and I was always, “No way, I hate your kids!” and he was all, “But you’re the NANNY.” I knew I never should have quit my job at the gas station.
