Beer Launching Fridge

Another great alcohol delivery system:

This is certainly not without its flaws; most notable that it dispenses cans which I’m sure will be well shaken after the toss and catch. Its no Bar Monkey, but you’ve gotta respect the effort.

Robot Serves Beer

Don Burleson sent me a link to this gizmodo article on the beer dispensing robot in the movie below.

While it’s certainly a cool toy I can’t see why the guys at Gizmodo are so impressed. For starters it’s slow, second it looks like it only does cans (let’s face it, if you like beer enough to have this robot you drink it out of bottles), but most disappointingly it looks quite messy!

So while I look forward to more commercially available automated drink makers/servers this robot just doesn’t stack up to the Bar Monkey.

As New Hampshire (USA) dries out from some of the worst flooding we’ve ever seen in this area we look to the world to see how others handle these disasters.
