Scotsman Beer Dispenser Pours Ten Pints in Ten Seconds

The Scotsman Trufill beer dispenser takes a different approach to filling pints, by filling from the bottom up. In doing so, it is able to serve beer at the alarmingly fast rate of ten pints in ten seconds. One would assume that a specialized cups or glasses are required in order to make use of the bottom-up filling method, but if it gets us beer faster, I am all for it.

Wenger Giant Swiss Army Knife

If this doesn’t take the cake, it will at least slice it in 67 different ways. The Wenger Giant Swiss Army Knife features a staggering 85 implements and is capable of performing over 100 tasks. It comes complete with double-cut wood saw, laser flashlight, universal wrench, golf divot repair tool and of course, what Swiss Army Knife is complete without a flashlight? It does weigh 1.5kg though, so you may not want to put it anywhere flimsy. Like a pocket.

Faucet with Built In Electronic Thermostat

The Blok is an awesome new minimalist faucet mounted to a large shelf. Embedded within the shelf is a glowing digital display showing the water’s temperature. You can view the thermostat to instantly know if the water is too hot or too cold without having to do the tried and true water touching method.

The desktop candy maker is cool, but I think the Beer dispenser is the best 🙂

Vadim Says: November 21, 2008 at 7:32 am

My vote for the Faucet with Built In Electronic Thermostat.

joel Says: November 21, 2008 at 7:37 am

I work from home and I sure would not get any work done if I had the desktop cotton candy maker. I would be bouncing off the walls!

Eric Says: November 21, 2008 at 7:37 am

Scotsman Trufill beer dispenser — is there really another contender?

Jessica Says: November 21, 2008 at 8:06 am

I don’t know what I’d do with so much beer, but it’s undeniably cool.

Ryan Says: November 21, 2008 at 8:27 am

Beer is good!

Justin Says: November 21, 2008 at 9:43 am

Is it the perfect pint??? I think so!

Donnell Says: November 21, 2008 at 10:00 am

my vote is for the Solar car battery charger practical and very overdue.

Jonathan Says: November 21, 2008 at 12:37 pm

I am gonna go with the Laptop 🙂 But maybe thats just because I want a new laptop!

Juergen Says: November 21, 2008 at 2:10 pm

Beer. Can’t beat it

Jason Says: November 21, 2008 at 4:46 pm

Solar battery charger. This will be great for taking the boat out.

Jenna Says: November 21, 2008 at 7:40 pm

IcCase Power Slider Case. My iPhone could definitely use it.

Maxxx Says: November 22, 2008 at 3:26 am

The desktop cotton candy maker – how cool would that be (although I may get even fatter!)

Brenna Says: November 22, 2008 at 8:18 am

I think this cotton candy maker is awesome. I should get the $50 gift card because I need the money for Christmas. I am planning to get my niese this new toy that is like $200. It’s rediculas I know, but she is only 1 in 5 poeple that I buy gifts for, so I don’t care.

amq Says: November 22, 2008 at 9:22 am

My EEE 901 has better battery life than that HP netbook 🙂 that is all i need.

ann Says: November 22, 2008 at 6:41 pm

Giant Swiss Army Knife takes the cake. I’ve wanted to buy one of those for years. Seriously, that thing has just about everything you need to survive. Yeah, I’m suprized there isn’t a laptop and cell phone tucked in there as well.

Helard Says: November 23, 2008 at 4:17 am

What a cool has be working with your computer just using your index fingers!

max Says: November 23, 2008 at 10:55 am

I would have to go with the laptop, it has a touch screen and is a laptop hands down the winner.

EC Says: November 23, 2008 at 3:56 pm

I’d say the car battery charger, it has a more practical use than any of the other ones. Though it isn’t very fun…

peg Says: November 23, 2008 at 5:15 pm

I think that the best thing is the HP TouchSmart tx2 notebook. It is like a touchscreen laptop. I think it is so cool. If I had the money I would buy one.

Denis Says: November 23, 2008 at 6:13 pm

Beer gadgets, always a good choice!
Definetely the best.

Jerry Says: November 23, 2008 at 9:50 pm

i like the power slider case!

Krysta Says: November 24, 2008 at 7:37 am

The perfect water temp every time would be awesome. How about multiple water temperature presets?

Amanda Says: November 25, 2008 at 8:27 am

I love the built in thermostat.

Chris Says: November 25, 2008 at 10:33 pm

The faucet just rocks! tired of scalding your hands with hot boiling water or mistreting them with freezing water? You’re too sophisticated for that! Buy the faucet and just feel the thermostat! simple!

Pearl Says: November 29, 2008 at 1:01 pm

I really like the car battery charger because I’ve had my battery go dead in the winter time and it really sucks.

Lamka Says: June 19, 2009 at 12:49 pm

Однажлы в студеную зимнию пору. Бродил Я по нету. Наткнулся на пост. Понравилось очень! Респект выражаю! И даже в закладки себе добавляю!
