Underground Beer Cooler

Posted in Home by Tam Yue on June 5th, 2014

Underground Beer coolerIt seems as though everyone has a fire pit in their backyard these days. And with that fire pit there is either a cooler of beer on ice or an angry child having to run into the house to get dad a cold one when he’s empty.

No more of that, this underground beer cooler, called eCool, was unveiled yesterday. It sells for around $350 and can easily be installed in your yard just by digging a hole for it. The eCool keeps the beer cold because the ground underneath is usually quite a bit cooler than the outside ambient temperature.

No electricity, no ice, and no whining kids. It holds 24 beers, is 113cm tall, weighs about 12 KG and can stay installed the whole year around. One draw back that we can see is that it only appears to …

SpinChill: Cold Beer in 60 Seconds

Posted in Coolers by Tam Yue on May 23rd, 2014

SpinChillTake two really smart Mechanical Engineers from the University of Florida, give them a luke warm beer and they come up with a brilliant idea. They used their knowledge of engineering, heat transfer and their love of cold beer to come up with the SpinChill.

They found that cooling a container of liquid in a tub of ice took much longer than if that container was constantly spinning. The reason for this has to do with heat transfer. If the container is just sitting in the ice the outside layer of the liquid cools and it insulates the inner liquid which slows down the overall cooling process. By spinning the container it allows the warm liquid in the center to reach the outer edge where it can be cooled instantly.

Octane 120 Beer Arcade

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on July 13th, 2011

Driving games are great, but they have lacked one important thing. Beer. The Octane 120 Beer Arcade is a fully functioning gaming PC, with full driving controls, a built-in projector so you can play BIG and a dozen driving simulations pre-installed. So that takes care of the driving.

What about the drinking? Well, they have that covered too, for better or worse. Behind the seat, there is enough room for half a barrel of beer, with a tap in the middle of your controls, so that you can pour a fresh beer while driving.

Budweiser Nun Chucks

Posted in Weapons by Conner Flynn on May 22nd, 2011

Let’s say you want go all Bruce Lee on someone, but in a redneck sort of way. Well, for that occasion, look no further than these Budweiser Nun Chucks. They are the creation of Kai Tsien-Williams and Chen Chen. To make the beat down of some poor guy even worse, these Budweiser cans are actually filled with cement. Which is kind of appropriate since that’s where he will end up.

They are for sale right now, we just aren’t sure where. Maybe that’s a good thing. I don’t think we need many of these in the world. Although they seem easy enough to make.

Cap Storing Bottle Opener keeps caps off your floor

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on March 20th, 2011

Opening a beer or ten usually results in caps being all over the place. This is mostly due to laziness and drunkenness. Well, the new Cap Storing Bottle Opener will solve this problem. It stores your bottle caps leaving no mess on your floors and counters. The opener sits on a bottle, which is also your handle. When you pry the cap off your drink, the cap falls down into the handle.

Not sure how many it can hold but at least it helps you keep things cleaner. We’re not sure if this will actually come to market or not, but it’s a great idea.

Beer Keg PC Case Mod

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on November 22nd, 2010

This guy is doing it all wrong. We aren’t that impressed when someone takes a beer keg and turns it into a PC case. What this world really needs is the technology to turn old PC cases into full beer kegs. That would help the environment and give us more beer. More beer is always good.

But having said that, Ben Lzicar has turned an empty Anheuser-Busch keg into a PC case and it’s pretty cool. He powder-coated the keg with a beautiful shiny black finish, decked it out with chrome, and loaded it with bright blue LEDs. Of course, there is also a bottle opener.

Beverage Buggy

Posted in R/C Toys by Conner Flynn on May 3rd, 2010

Beer + Buggy = You getting drunk without having to move your ass off the couch. Let’s face it, it’s 2010 and by now we should be able to go to Walmart and buy a robot butler who will bring us beer, but that isn’t the case. So we will just have to work with what we have.

And what we have is RC vehicles. They will have to do. Like this fully functional Beverage Buggy, which delivers two cans or bottles of your favorite drink(beer) in a radio-control dune buggy. But who is going to load that beer into the buggy?

Beer bottles blown into glasses are sweet

Posted in Home by Shane McGlaun on April 9th, 2010


The weekend is here, you might have one thing on your mind about now, kicking back, and grabbing yourself some Heine, you know Heineken beer. Make has posted up some cool glasses made out of old beer and soda bottles.

The glasses are made by glassblower Nick Paul in Chicago. I guess needing to make the glasses is a good reason for drinking lots of beer and soda. These glasses remind me a lot of drinking out of Mason jars for some reason.

Bottle opener remote is the perfect man tool

Posted in Remotes by Conner Flynn on March 21st, 2010

On the weekend, when sitting in a comfy chair in our man-caves, men require two things and only two things. A remote and a bottle opener. When you put the two together, you get a tool of pure awesomeness.

The Clicker adds a bottle opener to the side of a universal remote, so you can open your brew and continue to channel surf. However this won’t help you if you drink canned beer. Too bad for you guys. I’ll be kicking back and relaxing.

Heineken robot serves you a cold one

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on February 8th, 2010

This “Heineken Bot” sports Heineken’s green colors and was made by the folks at Middlesex University. The beer-bot was recently shown off at the Kinetica Art Fair in London, where it kept humans inebriated and topped off.

If a human moves their hand above its sonar-sensing head, and then place a cup in its holder they are rewarded with beer. Is there any better reward? No. No there is not.

Bottle-opener hammer for drinking on the construction job

Posted in Tools by Conner Flynn on October 8th, 2009

Bottle-opener hammer for drinking on the construction jobConstruction sites are dangerous. That’s why we have hard-hats. I can’t think of a worse place to be drinking on the job. But this Bottle-opener hammer from Harbor Freight makes it okay to have a cold one, whether you’re staggering on scaffolding or nailing your buddy’s hand to a wall.

Don’t worry about the job. It will get done when it gets done. Bill’s head will heal from that fall and Foreman Mike didn’t really need that leg anyway. Work is so much more adventurous when the booze flows.

Cap Wrench Bottle Opener

Posted in Tools by Conner Flynn on September 15th, 2009

Cap Wrench Bottle OpenerWe’ve seen tons of bottle openers around here, but this one is perhaps the manliest way to open a bottle ever. Men know two things. Opening bottles and working with tools. And since I’m a man I like to think I know a little something about both.

Craftsman’s Cap Wrench Bottle Opener is basically a opener that acts as a fulcrum and weighs a solid 0.64 lbs. It’s made from solid steel. If your buddies see you opening a beer with this thing, they are gonna know who the alpha dog is. Right tool for the right job.

The Beer Trike

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on August 26th, 2009

The Beer TrikeForget drunk driving. The Beer Trike drives your drinks. It is essentially a mobile pub. And perhaps one of mankind’s finest inventions. It could be as big as the ice cream truck, only for adults. The beer trike was built for the British Biker Build-Off.

You have your usual bike along with a sidecar, and a completely operational mobile bar. It also sports air suspension on all three wheels. The only concern is how to keep all of that beer cold. If I could, I would buy this and travel the country filling mugs everywhere and becoming a legend.
