Rapid beverage chiller

While trolling about the internet today I came across this product…

The Cooper Cooler HC01-A Rapid Beverage Chiller

This contraption boasts the ability to take a room temperature can of juice, beer, soda or even a bottle of wine and make it a thirst quenching 44 degrees in just a matter of minutes. The product costs about $50 on sale at Amazon which to me is a bit pricey for the product. However there have been many times (like Tuesday night) where I just served dinner only to realize that I forgot to chill the bottle of white wine. Lucky for me my freezer is a beast and can chill things about twice as fast as most other freezers. Still, I can definitely see the appeal of this product especially for parties and entertaining. I think I’ll wait until it drops another $20 before I consider picking it up thought.

If you too dont feel like shelling out $50 for a chilled beverage, check out this episode of one of my favorite shows, Mythbusters, where they look into myths about how to rapidly chill a 6-pack. If you feel like wasting your fire extinguisher (those things are expensive to refill) you can chill a beer in a matter of seconds by blasting it with the extinguisher.

DIY Mobile Bar

This week on Instructables user jamiep posted up instructions for how to make your own Mobile Bar aka BaR2D2.

If only the frat boys of the world could figure out how solder and hard-wire, theres nothing that could stop them from building a beer slinging army of BaR2D2s! Actually, just from skimming the instructions, it doesnt look like a terribly complicated project. In fact with some elbow crease and patience just about anyone could construct this project even if they’ve never worked with robotics before. The creator of this project described BaR2D2 as “is a radio-controlled, mobile bar that features a motorized beer elevator, motorized ice/mixer drawer, six-bottle shot dispenser, and sound activated neon lighting.” Apparently its also “driveable” so you can “take the party on the road.” Im not exactly sure how this is drivable, but I can only hope that they mean you can ride it home on autopilot after you get to drunk to drive.

Below is a video of BaR2D2 in action and click here for step by step instructions to make your own.
