A Launcher, for the Rest of Us

Finally, someone comes up with a useful robot! I mean, an automated vacuum cleaner is a nice idea and all, but it simply doesn't compare to a gizmo that'll fling you a cold one from across the room. The potential for mayhem alone is worth the price of admission.

Both of you stop and think how many windows you'd want to replace due to "over exuberant" beer tosses.
Or angry wives/girlfriends/friend's wives/semisignificant others that got hit with an ill-timed beer request.
Dunno, the thing seems pretty dang accurate to me... 13 out of 13 through a hole not much bigger than the can itself.
And I don't see how anyone could walk in front of it in mid-toss, the thing makes enough racket to drown out the most raucous football parties.
Yes, but these are the ladies we're talking about. I get the feeling that they'll do it for a few different reasons:
1. Because they're cleaning and ignoring what we're doing.
2. On principle in that they don't want it there and are ignoring it and "daring" us to hit them.
3. To prove to us that it's unsafe.
As for it hitting the windows, c'mon, we're guys here. If Tim Allen taught us anything, all tools and gagdets like this need to be "adjusted". And these adjustments tend to "break" things.
