Meet the iPhone controlled beer fridge cannon

275x250.jpg The inventor of an iPhone-controlled fridge which shoots cans of beer across a room from a CANNON says he now never needs to leave the sofa when he wants a brew.

25-year-old technology consultant Ryan Rusnak came up with the gadget because he was fed up with having to walk to the fridge every time he wanted a drink.

Working with a pal he turned a fridge in a basic vending machine which dropped chilled beers -- and then added a compressed air cannon, web server and iPhone interface.

Now when he wants a beer, he uses his phone to log into the fridge, picks what sort of beer he wants and fires it over to where he is sitting. Basically, he's created the worlds best ever invention.

Rusnak says it took them three months to perfect. To start with they had to decide on what selection of beers to stock and there were more than one or two wayward flying beers as they calculated the right amount of pressure.

"It was kind of famous last words: 'how much pressure should we use?'" said Ryan, "The first attempt smashed the can into the roof, and blew it into a thousand pieces."

But he says it was worth all the hard work and spilled beer: "After working an eight-hour day, a regular job, coming in and firing a can to yourself is just the best thing.

"Even now, I've fired it hundreds of times and it's still cool."

The ballistic beer fridge has a webcam on the front and can be aimed by the iPhone app to make sure the right person always gets the right beer
