From the erudite pages of “The Australian”, home of the antipodean neo-cons, comes this story of the sports-loving male must-have gadget of the year.
DUKE UNIVERSITY, North Carolina: A US inventor has come up with the ultimate sport-viewing accessory – a fridge that throws cold cans of beer to fans who are too lazy to get off the couch.
John Cornwell spent three months and $2500 perfecting the Beer Launching Fridge, which is activated by a remote control that sets off a lift mechanism in the fridge.
The lift delivers the can to an electronic catapult, which rotates until it is lined up with its thirsty target.
It then hurls the beer up to 3.5m to the drinker.
It can hold a full 24-can carton.
See the fridge in action here at metacafe.
Now for an automatic pizza delivery system.
