Beer pong is enjoyed by the masses. It’s the best game to play at a party, and the age limit is... death.
Let’s face it, this is a game that we’ll never get tired of playing. There is, however, always room for improvement.
Now, we've already seen a Roomba repurposed for beer pong games. It was great. It was possibly inconvenient, but it looked like fun.
Developers Alan Dorfman and Jayson Esterow have created Pongbot ― a high-tech, edge-sensing robot.
The team hopes to raise $100,000 on their Kickstarter page in the next 30 days, with advanced plans to ship Pongbots to backers as early as December of this year. So far, backers have pledged around $7,000.
The Kickstarter campaign states that “Instead of tossing a ping pong ball at a group of stationary cups, Pongbotspins, darts, and randomly changes direction,” claiming that “this makes beer pong more fun, more exciting and a lot more challenging!”
It’s basically a Roomba for beer, able to hold one cup per caddie and up to five with additional attached caddies.
The Pongbot is guaranteed to make your beer pong experience more challenging, more fun, and probably a lot dizzier.
Right now, if you pledge $40, you get one full set. Well, let's do a little price comparison with a Roomba... OH, ONLY 10 TIMES MORE EXPENSIVE?! Yeah, if you're looking to level up your beer pong game, this Pong Bot looks like the move.
