An art project that gives new meaning to "form and function"

The internet is a wild, unforgiving place, and if you spend as much time on it as we do you’re bound to grow tired of it—at least for a time. Then, as if bestowed from on high, you find some little nugget of awesomeness that sates each one of your nerdy pastimes.
Today, that little nugget is this: a Darth Vader Beer Fridge and Vodka Fountain. Next time you’re having jitters about flying, scrambling to pay the rent, or cursing your Xbox, just repeat these words: “Darth Vader Beer Fridge and Vodka Fountain. Darth Vader Beer Fridge and Vodka Fountain.” Because that’s a thing.
This highly practical, argument-ending refrigerator was apparently built by artist Tom Sachs, who also has a host of other nifty “pop-tech” creations, including this re-creation of the Apollo Lunar Module.
But the Vader fridge merges form and function into a kernel of technological finality that demands all of the alcoholic beverages therein—that is, if you can handle the judgmental glare of Lord Vader each time you reach for another cold one.
Welp, that’s it people—it’s over. Art and technology are done. We’ve reached the plateau. Enjoy the downward spiral into decadent spoil. It was worth it.
