Beer Bombs Away With the “Mini Fridge Beer Cannon”

This article is over 13 years old and may contain outdated information

This may be the greatest invention since the wheel: an iPhone-controlled beer fridge cannon that lets you pick your brew by remote control and then fires it at you from across the room.

Pop quiz, hotshot. It’s midway through the third quarter and you’re stretched out on your recliner in front of your 52-inch plasma. Doritos on your right, Ding Dongs on your left – but you’re out of beer. What do you do? What do you do?

At least one man, a creative genius by the name of Ryan, will never again be plagued by such a nightmare scenario. He’s turned his old beer fridge from college into the most incredible yet practical robotic super-weapon of all time: a “mini-fridge beer cannon” that fires his suds of choice at him from across the room.

The beer cannon can be aimed through the iPhone interface thanks to a built-in webcam, meaning that beer acquisition can continue unhindered even after a migration from recliner to couch. It packs a 50 PSI punch, enough to provide both refreshment and post-refreshment-dulled-reflexes hilarity, and will even tweet about every brewski it fires. It’s sheer, unbridled awesomeness in every way except one: Bud Light, Bud Light Lime, Bud Select and Pabst Blue Ribbon? Seems to me that a beer cannon should have some, you know, actual beer in it.
