Are you hungry for some milk and cookies? You could trudge all the way to the kitchen cabinet and grab some Oreos, then open the fridge to grab a bottle of milk, but that would be way too much work. Why can’t we just walk up to the wall and be fed milk and cookies without any effort at all? Well, now we can, thanks to the work of Emiel, aka The Practical Engineer.
In the interest of progress, Emiel built himself a pair of wall-mounted dispensers which can feed him Oreos and milk without the need for hands. He simply walks up to each lever, pushes down with his neck, and out pops a snack from one machine, and a stream of milk from the other. The cookie dispenser is powered by a spring, while the milk dispenser actually has a pump built into it.
He built the dispensers using a combination of off-the-shelf and 3D printed parts, and you can build your own with the instructions and template files he’s selling on his website for just €5.95 (or about $6.50 USD). While I can get behind the Oreo dispenser, I’m afraid that milk dispenser would be pretty impractical to keep clean – and without refrigeration, the milk won’t last long.
