Bud-E is a smart beer fridge provides real-time updates to ensure you never run out of Bud Light on game day.
Want a surefire way to never be asked to host another Monday Night Football party? Run out of beer. Luckily, it looks like the Internet of Things has come to the rescue, preventing such situations from ever arising. That’s because Bud Light has tapped into the IoT by creating a Wi-Fi-connected fridge, which provides real-time updates on the status of your supply right on your smartphone.
The aptly named Bud-E Fridge is a first-of-its-kind smart home appliance, ideal for every man cave, that enables you to easily keep tabs on the number of Bud Light cans and bottles inside, when they are cold enough to drink, and where you can find nearby stores to replenish the stock should it run low, all from its accompanying mobile app. Even better, those living in cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego can even order more brew with the press of a button and have it delivered to their doorstep — without ever having to leave the sofa.
Developed in collaboration with Buzz Connect and Linq IQ, the Bud-E Fridge and its app allows fans to program their favorite teams so that the Bud-E Fridge can keep them in the know for upcoming games. When an event is approaching, the intelligent device will immediately send an alert if your game day supply of Bud Light is in need of replenishment.
As aforementioned, the Bud-E Fridge offers an accurate count of your fridge — which holds up to 78 cans or 60 12-ounce bottles and 18 cans — along with a timer indicating when your Bud Light is expected to reach optimal serving temperature. The must-have appliance will also notify you if you’re running low via your phone, regardless of whether an upcoming game is about to take place.
Meanwhile, the outside of the Bud-E Fridge is equipped with a dashboard that can be set to either show the amount of beer remaining or the temperature inside. Plus, the unit boasts a fuel gauge-like display that reveals how empty/full the fridge is at any given time.
