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.
