Gadget geeks invent sonic beer foamer

14th April, 2014 by Lauren Eads

A gadget-loving company has created an ultra-sonic device which it says will ensure your beer will always have the perfect head and will never go flat.

1bf1_sonic_foamer_inuseAs reported by The Daily Mail, the Sonic Foamer, made by ThinkGeek.com, sends ultrasonic waves through your pint glass at the touch of a button to create a foamy head on any beer, without making it go flat.

Once loaded with six AA batteries the device has enough juice in it to provide “3,000 foams” and “will not flatten the beer”, according to its website.

Explaining how the device works, ThinkGeek said: “It releases vibrations that produce uniform bubbles creating a great head on your beer. You can recreate the head on your beer at anytime, even if you’re at the bottom of the bottle.”

Its makers also claim the sonic vibrations release the aroma of the beer, much in the same way a decanter does for wine.

    Thanks to the jackholes that made that fake wine device, and deceived the public (for a cause, so it’s okay that they’re liars and frauds) every time I see something like this I assume it’s also bull.

  2. ah technology this days, what next making the glass chilled so no need for ice? :)
