Beer Visionary Crafts Incredible iPhone-Controlled Can Cannon

Raunchy comedies of the '80s and '90s shared many common jokes and scenarios, but one juvenile staple may never grow old -- the flying beer, launched from seemingly out of nowhere, that immediately slams into a poised and waiting hand. Finally, a true beer hero named Ryan has manipulated modern technology to actualize that beverage greeting, and he did it using only an iPhone, a webcam and a conve...

British 'Smart' Beer Coasters Deliver Corny Pickup Lines for You

If you find it hard to strike up a conversation with a stranger at a bar, a team of Newcastle University students have developed "smart" beer coasters and an interactive bar top that will break the ice for you. According to the Guardian, the coasters light up blue for men and pink for women when touched by a glass. All you have to do is slide the coaster within about two feet of that guy or gal w...

iBottleopener Protects iPhones, Pops Bottles

Far from the first iPhone case/bottle opener we've seen, the iBottleopener is the first that doesn't immediately make us recoil in horror. Sure, there is absolutely no need for such a thing, unless you're in a frat and don't have regular access to dollar bills or lighters, but it's nice to see a rubber iPhone case good for something besides getting stuck in your pocket....

Willow Garage's PR2 Brobot Revolutionizes Robotic Boozing

The engineers at Willow Garage already taught their astounding PR2 bot to play pool, and now those same developers have added a new capability that corresponds perfectly with the PR2's stick-shooting, barroom skill. While bartender-bots and beer-pouring "kegs on wheels" grow increasingly commonplace, the PR2 adds an entirely new dimension to cybernetic drinking. Using a Web interface, thirsty ...

Moog Beer Honors Synth Pioneer the Right Way

There are plenty of ways to measure success. Some people think they've made it when they wind up being covered by a 24-hour cable news channel, others are holding out hope to be parodied by Weird Al. Switched? Well we think that we'll have made it when we get a beer named after us. With that as our benchmark for recognition, we'd say that somebody honoring electronic music icon Bob Moog with a bee...

Robotic Fridge Equipped With Gun, Arm and Boombox

People seem to love robotic refrigerators, and it's probably because they combine two of the best things on Earth: beer and bots. While this droid that an employee at Make found won't get any points for style, it certainly carries out its function. Built by a dog-sitter named Shawn, the Drozid is a mini-fridge mounted on what looks like the chassis of an electric wheelchair. On top of the cooler,...

Priced at about $52,000, the cart comes with a built-in fridge, a custom paint job, aluminum w...

Oxygenated Ale Promises All of the Drunk, None of the Hangover

Where would we be without hangovers? Aspirin sales would be lower, worker productivity on Monday mornings would be higher, and the cinematic masterpiece 'The Hangover' would be a predictable documentary about a bachelor party in Vegas. This, dear readers, is the future if extra-oxygenated Korean booze catches on worldwide. It's the result of research by Kwang-il Kwon and Hye Gwang Jeong at Chu...

Keg on Wheels: 'Heineken Bot' Rolls Around and Pours Beer for You

Share It's not too often that we get to write two of our favorite words -- beer and robot -- in the same sentence. So when suds and bots combine to form some unholy creation, it's a good day at the office. Enter the latest amalgamation, the brand-specific "Heineken Bot," which is basically a miniature keg on wheels. Think of it as a Roomba, but way cooler and more drunk. According to Engadget, th...

Man Builds 'Kegbot' for Real-Time Brew Level and Temperature Monitoring

The worst post-party experience is waking up to find a keg with beer still inside it. If this happens to you, there are two options: you can empty the remaining beer onto the ground (and shed a tear), or you can try your best to keep that keg iced down so the beer won't spoil. But one industrious beer-lover will never have to deal with this problem again. Inspired by a kegerator, Jean-Michel b...

First 'Space Beer' Made With Astro-Barley Sold on Earth

Apparently, there's not a lot of work to do on the International Space Station (ISS) these days. Who needs important scientific research anyway? Instead, some Russians and Japanese astronauts decided to grow some barley and make some home-brewed brew. According to the Telegraph, Japan's Sapporo Breweries will sell six packs of the world's first "space beer," which was actually brewed on this...

iPod Kegerator Kicks Out the Jams and the Brews

Worthy of an appearance on 'MTV Cribs,' this custom-made iPod kegerator combines two things every good party needs -- cold beer and hot jams. According to Bornrich, Craig Jones tricked out a plain old refrigerator for a magazine contest. He stripped the fridge down, installed a Bose iPod dock on the door, added classy blue neon fringe lighting, and gave it a custom paint job worthy of a hot rod. O...

Beer Pager Saves You From Ever Going Brewless

As it turns out, pagers are useful for more than just drug dealers and doctors. At least, that's what SkyMall is banking on with the 'Beer Pager.' With this device, you'll never again have to drink a hot beer just because you forgot where you left it. Snap on the removable coaster/coozie, clip the mini-remote control to your body, and let your worries disappear. According to Gadling, the 'Beer Pa...

'Smart' Mug Maintains Perfect Temperature For Your Drink

A self-regulating coffee mug may have been a pipe dream for warm beverage drinkers everywhere, but according to the Telegraph, German scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics (IBP) have created a 'smart' mug that keeps drinks, hot or cold, at the ideal temperature. The interior of the porcelain mug is filled with a waxy substance called phase change material (PCM), which is als...

'Arkeg' Cabinet Perfects Arcades and Ale
