This comes from an old Letterman show. You can check out the inventor’s Web site here.

This is totally stupid. Let’s call it a Personal Home Beer Delivery Robot. Here’s a clip from the Letterman show The inventor, John Cornwell, has an entire web site devoted to the machine and you can see a longer video here.

Basically, it’s a refrigerator stocked with cans of beer. The user (in this case, the inventor) his a remote, which operates the robotics. Click the remote. An elevator inside the refrigerator lifts a can of beer (all Miller’s, donated by Miller Brewing) up through the top of the refrigerator. A robotic arm grabs it, the robot rotates toward the direction of the person with the remote and tosses the can of beer in that direction.

There’s a real catch. The consumer has to catch the beer. You gotta see it to believe it. This video’s had over 5,000 views since i posted it last year.
