The World Needs More Beer Cannon
There’s nothing better than beer. I’m sorry gents, but beer is fucking amazing. What makes beer even better is when you can get one served to you from across the room, all from a mini-fridge that is controlled through an iPhone.
I know that his choice of beer isn’t exactly the best, but the execution is great for it being a prototype. The fridge (if you can’t see the video) was built to vend the iphone user’s choice of beer. The beer is then set into an air cannon that fires the beer across the room, the aim is adjusted by the iPhone via a webcam placed on the fridge. The user can also control the coldness of the beer by iPhone.
I’m a sucker for seeing cool DIY projects like this. It makes me wish I had the time or energy to do one myself.

I sit upon my throne as the owner/shogun of this site, WatchPlayRead. But it wasn’t always so. I too have had blogspots, I’ve done other community blogs, I’ve even written professionally for other sites out there…yet none of them provided the content I had a real passion for.
It is then that I became tired of being a small cog in a big machine, and of writing about nothing but game news after game news article and the periphery that comes from such schlock, like knowing who Michael Pachter and Bobby Kotick are.
I decided to start MediaWhoreNetwork.com and ran up my post count there for about 2 years, commenting about any and everything that I wanted to. I even started a weekly podcast that I feel has come into its own.
It wasn’t until earlier this year that I realized that having the word “whore” in your URL might be a bit limiting to my potential audience. I then made the website and its branding move over to WatchPlayRead.com.
