Cool down your warm Beer in seconds without ice

Cool Beer - Isn't that what every Beer lover want? Homer Simpson could be a spokesperson for this device as it instantly chill a beverage without using any ice by using liquid CO2 to turn a warm beverage into a cold one within seconds. It eliminates the need for hauling around those huge coolers to the beach or to a barbecue. It could also save space in your refrigerator by not having to put huge cases of beer or other drink. Most importantly, it does not dilute the drink unlike ice. The inventor of this device is 22 year old Kent Hodgson explains the technology in his own words, "You have plastic cooling cells which are pressed down into the dock which houses the liquid carbon dioxide. The liquid CO2 expands and is pressurized into dry ice in the base of the cooling cells ... in a moment. You then pop it into your drink and then proceed from there as you normally would." The device is almost the size of a marker and is expected to cool a case of beer with one canister of CO2. Its estimated to cost 7 cents to cool one bottle of beer. Forgot to mention that his invention is called Huski and Kent is currently showing his device at an exhibit at the Design Exposure 2007 at Britomart Pavilion. He is working on patenting the device and is expected to retail it for $50. Nice invention~
