Drinking itself is a fairly analog pasttime, but the dispensing of these treats doesn't need to be.
The beer-launching fridge
If there's anything you would want in a beer vending robot, it is likely to be the ability to launch full beer cans at high velocity toward your face. Not only can you have this beer cannon lob libations at you, but you can also select from four different types of beer using your smartphone.
Created by Ryan Rusnak, the cannon broadcasts the beer's temperature and allows temperature adjustments via iPhone. It aims via webcam and fires the beer with 50psi of deliciousness. It then automatically tweets video of each shot.
Unfortunately, there's no detailed build log, and this system quit tweeting beer shots back in 2011. When we contacted Rusnak, he told us, "I actually blew it up on the Science Channel show called JUNKies... Completely by accident of course. Maybe time for V2."
