Bugs & Cranks finds the world's most important invention, through the Associated Press of all places, since the opposable thumbs. It's a beer tap right there at your table.

It's currently being used at a bar in Atlanta, and it works.

A waitress must first check IDs before turning on the tap. When the digital ticker counting each ounce hits 180 โ€” or about three pitchers โ€” the taps shut off until a server comes by to check on the table. Bigger parties keep servers running back and forth fairly often, while it's rarer for smaller groups to hit the limit.
