robot, fridge, beer.
« on: May 03, 2009, 05:41:46 PM »
All this time we've been trying to make robots that go to the fridge that bring us beer, but apparently we got it all wrong!

The solution is so obvious now . . .

wow! that is an awesome ad man!
now picture this....
largeish biped chassis with a beer backpack...
once you get stability worked out it may be plausible...
but i still like the beer launcher, anyone remember that one?

How could we not guess!

Well, you may not exactly have to create a biped. But what's the fun in that?!?!?! Maybe this is the motivational project idea I've been needing  ;D

You know those bank air-tube systems? Image one of those in your house... press a button and a can of soda or beer just flies into your hands

I would make one with wheels, but it than can't go up stairs and I don't have a mini fridge. Someone could make this with tracks so it could go up stairs but I wouldn't trust the weight going up more than 1-3 stairs.

It might be cheaper in the end to just buy a mini fridge for every room  ;D

I've seen a few robots capable to bring the cold beer to you. The one I liked the most was Bar2D2, even tho it wasn't autonomous and it did not have voice command and all the "nice" stuff.

the autonomous part wouldn't be that hard would it? i guess you could carry an ir beacon with you at all times while watching t.v... but that robot was mad...

Both of these commercials were really good.  I swear, they stole airman00's idea.  :o  :P

Now all we need to create is a flying robot fridge...
