If you are like me, you like a good cold beer once in a while, but are normally too preoccupied (by the TV) to get up and get it. Well, John Cornwell, an inventor, might have invented the answer to our prayers – a way to make the beer come to you. (And who said that laziness isn’t the mother of all inventions?)
Wow, that is what we all have thought from time to time. With that simple question Mr. Cornwell begin a quest to answer it with an invention – the Beer Launch. How does the Beer Launch work? The Beer Launch, which can hold a case of can beer, pulls one can from the 10 in the magazine (the other 14 are in reserve) sitting in the refrigerator and puts it into a catapult mounted on top of the fridge. The catapult then rotates until it is properly aligned with your hand and launches.
Apparently targeting is still a little questionable, having pelted the head instead of hitting the beer drinking hand. But
Cornwall assures that a little practice cures this problem. Or he could have been hit one too many times and doesn’t notice anymore!
Still the thought of a cold frosty beverage without leaving my chair is an attractive one despite the risks. If I could talk my wife into buying one for me for Father’s Day, I can stop training the twins to open the fridge and bring me a beer! Cheers!
