Ask any college student to define the word "refrigerator" and you'll get an obvious answer: It's a device to keep your beer cold. But the problem with a refrigerator is that it only works as long as the beer is inside, where you can't (comfortably) drink it. Luckily, on the untamed technology frontier known as Kickstarter, inventors are feverishly working to overcome this limitation. The most likely candidate we've seen so far? A tiny, reusable ice cube called the "Beer Blizzard." According to the product's Kickstarter page, the Beer Blizzard is a reusable ice cube shaped like the bottom of a beer can, made from thermoplastic polyurethane and filled with a non-toxic, quick-freezing thermal fluid.
