Ladies and gentlemen, I give you...

...the Beer Launcher!

This just goes to show that for men there is no investment of time and effort too great in the pursuit of finding a way to avoid the time and effort required to get our lazy keisters off that couch.

The fridge is activated by a remote control which sets off a lift mechanism in the fridge.

The lift delivers the can to an electronic catapult, which rotates until it is lined up with its thirsty target.

It then hurls the beer up to 10ft to the drinker. It can hold a full 24-can crate - 10 beers in its magazine and 14 more in reserve.

John, 22, who has just graduated from university in North Carolina, said: "The idea was conceived when I was sitting on the sofa having a few beers.

"I thought, 'What if instead of me going to get the beer, the beer came to me?'

"About three months later I have a fully automated, remote-controlled, catapulting, beer-launching mini-fridge.

"There is a slight danger of being hit in the head with a flying can but this danger decreases the more you use it."

You would think the risk of getting hit in the head would increase the more you use it. No?

YIPS from Steve-O: Yes, I asked for it, but you only gave me the link! For the lazy out there (who are the natural constituency for the beer launching fridge):
