SpinChill Portable Drink Chiller

A can of warm beer, a cooler filled with ice, and a SpinChill. Put them together and you'll be 60 seconds away from an ice. Cold. Party. Prefer bottles of beer? Bottles of wine? Teetotaling with the orange sodie? SpinChill, like Jesus, loves all the little beverage containers. And while the device cannot walk on water, it can use the laws of physics to manipulate ice, and lower your preferred drink's temperature to levels of ideal refreshment.

The handheld SpinChill attaches to the top of any standard-sized can or beer/wine bottle. Once the vessel is lowered into a vat of ice (or an ice/water combo), it harnesses the power of 4 x AA batteries and an on button to twirl the encased contents cold. From start to finish, the process is 20 to 30 times faster than just letting a pile of drinks sit in a pile of ice. Cans of beer chill in 60 seconds, 12 ounce glass bottles in 3 minutes, and wine bottles in 5 minutes. All good news for nights when the party's host is too hammered to remember to restock, or when some jackass drinks the bottle of 65% Armageddon you tried to hide at the bottom of the cooler 45 minutes ago.

Unlike standard container cooling, which operates according to the principle of conduction and cools liquids layer by layer from the outside to the inside, SpinChill introduces convection to the heat (cold) transfer process. That is, as a can/bottle cools, and passes these lowered temperatures to the adjacent interior liquid, SpinChill keeps rotating which liquid molecules are in contact with the cooling container's walls. So rather than wait for the trickle-down cooling effect of conduction, warm liquid in the center of the container continually rotates through it, and all contents start cooling in sync and instantly.

I know you have another question. The answer is no. Putting your beer can on a 60-second merry-go-round ride will not cause its carbonation to freak out and explode in your face upon opening. SpinChill doesn't agitate liquids in that way at all. In fact, creators Ty Parker and Trevor Abbott say its use actually results in less foam than usual. The reason: air pockets and nucleation sites that fester during shaking, but nullify when rotated.
