Putting Some Tape in Perspective

The fridge, which I'm hereby dubbing the R2Beer2, is set to hit the market some time next year.

What's cooler than being cool? Ice cold beverages delivered to you by a droid, obviously. 

Japanese appliance brand Aqua has created this adorable and functional R2D2 miniature refrigerator for exactly that.  As if having an R2 mini-fridge wasn't cool enough, the unit is also capable of going wireless and delivering your beverages to you by remote control!

Who needs a significant other to bring you a beer when you've got a robot who doesn't judge your drinking habits.

Poetry in a Parking Lot

This unopened beer is 140 years old.

This beer is Allsopp's Arctic Ale, brewed for an arctic expedition that failed in 1875. An auctioneer selling the beer told the BBC that in researching the beer he found it would most likely be "sweet tasting with a hint of tobacco," based on a similar beer that was opened and tasted.
