No longer content with building virtual dispensers in Valve's Team Fortress 2, an admittedly obsessed fan has taken things to the next level. But instead of ammunition or health, this particular dispenser is packed with two "emergency beers."

Unveiled on the Steam forums and in a slideshow, Drastisch's 1.15 meter-tall creation houses his DSL modem and router in its interior, a 15" TFT display, and three openable compartments, while a telephone and answering machine sit on top.

It doesn't look like Drastisch will be selling it any time soon, but he did provide some instructions and measurements for aspiring engineers. "Basically it's made out of [Medium-density fibreboard], 20mm thick, and then painted on with lacquer. The signs are made out of photographic paper (I ordered a custom-made poster for that)."

          it isn't YOUR spare time at stake, it is that of someone who likes building obscure stuff for enjoyment more than you apparently do

          that is a pathetic excuse to denigrate the work of another who doesn't pretend to take life as seriously as you apparently do

            Did you make this answering machine/beer holder/router case/prop from a videogame thing?

            I think your overly passionate defense posting might be the only thing below the fake dispensor on the list of productive things to do with your life. With the exception being this post, of course ;)

              nah, i'm just fed up with the bullshit reply of "i've got better things to do with my time"

              like i'm sure everyone does, but sometimes we as people like to do things we enjoy over things that are "important"
