    Here's a fun little video for fans of Google, fans of beer, and especially fans of Canadian beer. Molson Canada created a smart fridge that has some specific requirements before it will offer up it's ice cold beer. It has been outfitted with a Google Translate mechanism, and needs the phrase “I am Canadian” spoken in six different languages before it will open. It was then dropped in the middle of a busy thoroughfare (Right across from the St.Lawrence Market) and hilarity ensues.

    The fridge was designed by a team-up between Google and Thinking Box, and is a crafty idea to get folks to work together with different languages. It was commissioned to celebrate Canada’s cultural diversity, and to commemorate the country’s birthday on July 1st. The next time it will be showcased will be July 10th in Toronto, just before the Pan Am Games.
