If you regularly read the Mutineer Blog, you know that alcohol + anything = awesomeness. Today’s blog post is no exception. Enter Beer2-D3, a bold collision of fine beverage and post-modern science fiction. Created by Paul Loughridge, this is an ingenious use of the Heineken mini-keg.
I have a history with Heineken mini-kegs. I first moved to Los Angeles I was living in a 2-bedroom apartment with 4 people, so one guy lived in the living room, and we’d buy these Heineken mini-kegs all the time. (There is even a photo out there somewhere of me doing a mini-keg stand.) After awhile, we began to amass enough of these mini-kegs to start building a wall to separate our roommate’s living space from the living room.
The robot is built with the following parts:
Beer2’s technical specs:
Head – 1945 chrome BLC utility light shell.
Eye – Vintage movie camera lens w/adjustable spring-loaded aluminum casing.
Body – 4.7 liter “adult soda” mini-keg.
Legs – Propane tank valve handles, brass spacers, drilled-out washers, pair of aluminum Lady Josephine shoe butler (wall-mounted shoe shine holders).
Feet/Base – 3 mini bread loaf pans, lamp hardware and a 1/2″ precision drilled aluminum base plate. +assorted nuts, bolts, screws and, of course – lockwashers!
