These people have to patent this and sell it before the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia. Because it is ingenious.

A team of inventors called SmartThings have created a machine that automatically pours a shot every time the U.S. wins a medal during the Olympics.

It's connected to the internet, so the instant an American wins, a shot pours. It doesn't have the delay like the TV coverage.

They have the machine rigged to pour Jack Daniels for a bronze, Jose Cuervo silver tequila for a silver...and Goldschlager for a gold!

The best part of the video is that it looks like a guy at our station named Ben Anderson.
