Robotic Beer Launching Fridge

What a fantastic idea! With the push of a button the Robotic Beer Launching Fridge will get a cold beer from inside the cooler and launch it right too you. Just make sure you don’t accidental sit on the launch button or you might be explaining a black eye. I think the next step in development should be the introduction of multiple remotes, or even fixed buttons that will launch the beers over to different locations.

Video after the jump.

“Have you ever gotten up off the couch to get a beer for the umpteenth time and thought, “What if instead of ME going to get the BEER, the BEER came to ME???” Well, that was how I first conceived of the beer launching fridge. About 3 months and several hundred dollars later I have a fully automated, remote controlled, catapulting, man-pit approved, beer launching mini-fridge. It holds 10 beers in its magazine with 14 more in reserve to store a full case. It is controlled by a keyless entry system. Pressing unlock will start the catapult rotating and when it is aiming at your target, pressing unlock again will stop it. Then the lock button can be pressed to launch a beer in the selected direction.”
