Scuttlebutt: Video of the Week

(January 28, 2010) Convenience is the mother of invention, and we can thank her for the television remote control. But what a beer dispenser? Changing channels while still on the couch is cool, but why must we lose our seat when in need of a fresh brewski. It's winter, we are sailing less and sitting around more, the Super Bowl is next week, the Winter Olympics are after that, and yes, we are consuming a few adult beverages.

This week's video is not new, and has nothing to do with sailing, but it is a classic, and since we have yet to see the 'Beer Shooter' in retail stores, perhaps this idea needs another push. Watch the inventor show us how you can sit back, push the remote, have a beer come from the fridge, drop into the launcher, and get flung to us from across the room. Beautiful!
