    They've only gone and improved the beer can. I haven't been so excited since coors lights mountains started turning blue when it was at optimum drinking temperature. Pity it's only used on piss water so far or available in Japan. Clearly we're just not consuming enough beer to get this wonderful tech.

    Lets get started! Any idea what beer specifically uses it? Or what can company?? I'm more of a bottle fan myself, but when home brewing you have to take into account the can fans!

    Looks like the business. Nothing more infuriating that trying to open a can after, well, a few cans, and breaking off the opener thingy. You then have to come up with ingenious ways of opening the can, with out spraying yourself with beer.

    Which reminds me, does anyone recall some years back the self-cooling can? There was some gas in it that was released once you opened it and it immediately cooled the can from room temperature down to 4-5 degrees.

    Same with bottles. Why cant all bottles have twist off caps??
    Most beers here in oz have them, but every now and then you come accross one that doesnt, and you rip the hand off youself trying to open it before you realise its not a twisty.

    Im looking at you Heiniken :mad:

    and Oranjeboom which is in my fridge for some reason.

    real men use their teeth to take off tops of bottles. aussies must be soft if they rip their hands trying to open a beer bottle.
    in bangkok the women there use something else to take the tops off bottles...or so they say

    I've noticed this little indentation on cans of Heineken recently. I'm not sure how it ranks on a manly scale though, a little too close to accommodating ladynails...

    Dude man nails are short. Ready to adapt to any situation except being varnished or polished. Unfortunately that extends to having difficulty sliding said short nails under an uncomfortable can type device to receive beer. We're designed ourselves into an unmanly new realm of drink containment technology and any steps to evolve the process should not be greeted with fear and derision but an open and honest hope for the future of beer and beer containment.

    Heat adjustable hot sauce:

    Whether you’re a full-on chili head or just want a touch of added flavor, Dave’s Gourmet Adjustable Heat Hot Sauce accommodates all of your hot sauce needs. The specially designed twist top allows you to choose your level of heat. A nozzle mixes your chosen brew, rationing out the correct amount of each sauce to create your perfect spiced condiment.
    Nice one science.

    Coors Light... not really a beer though is it mate? I mean, same tech on the Tyskie and Lech bottles, now there's something to be excited about.

    My fave invention so far is the pull cap on bottles, with the little ring. It's on Utenos and Zelta and a few others. Excellent invention.
