The Pongbot Will Take Beer Pong Into the Future
Calling all frat boys and those who can’t seem to quit the life of a college student. We’ve found the perfect gift to add to this year’s Christmas list.
Meet Pongbot: The $40 Roomba-esque robot that will take your intense beer pong battles to the next level. Basically, a fancy version of this.
What you need to know:
- There is a five-cup caddie to hold your Solo cups. You can also play with one cup for a more difficult game.
- It has edge detection, so you don't have to worry about it taking a nosedive. And if it does, the machine is water resistant.
- Pongbot can spin and wander around on its own or be controlled via remote. The latter would actually bring in another competitive element (trying to throw off your opponent's throwing ability) that we are particularly excited about.
The product is still in Kickstarter stage, so if you want to turn the dreams of creators Alan Dorfman and Jayson Esterow into a reality, you can donate here. They need $100,000 by September 22 to start production.
But can you really put a price on elevating an American classic? For connoisseurs of Keystone and Natty Lite, no you certainly can not.
