Beer

If you have been running out of cool ways to use your iPhone, check in with Ryan to see if he has any ideas for you. Ryan has turned an old mini-fridge from his days at college days into an iPhone-controlled beer-firing cannon.

Among the features are that you can select from 4 types of beer, adjust the temperature, aim via the attached webcam. Additionally, the cannon auto tweets each shot. In addition, Ryan added on YouTube that crosshairs for aiming are in the works.

Watch the beerfest. He’s thinking of selling beer cannons once he reaches version 2.0.

“This is the maiden voyage of my mini fridge that now shoots beers via iPhone. It is controlled by an iobridge via a web based iPhone interface and shoots the beers from an air cannon in the housing.
Features:
Vends 4 types of beer
Broadcasts temperature
Adjust temperature via iPhone
Aim via webcam
Auto tweet video per shot
Fire beer with 50psi of deliciousness”
