Laser Guided Champagne Corks

For improved targeting accuracy!

Tearing off the foil wrapper from the top of the champagne bottle triggers a hidden switch which activates the miniature laser diode in the cork.

The red spot can then be manoeuvred onto the desired target before thumb pressure is applied to release the projectile.

       All you need now is a cork which flies as straight as a laser beam.   

       Alternatively, all you need now is a laser beam which droops sharply under gravity and blows sideways in a draft.

       Add C-4... it would be oh-so-much more fun if the cork exploded on impact. [+]

       I think "thumbs" are a very inaccurate way of firing the cork, its like using a laser targeting system on a rifle then trying to fire it accurately using only your feet-funny, but dangerous and silly. If a wire was passed through the cork and the bottle, with a loop on one side to pull on, you could fire it quicker, and with less hesitation.

       This is such a half-baked idea. Yay. Now I can hit that zonker, idiot I don't like, right square in the nose! +

       If you drink good champagne, you do not want the cork coming out in an energetic manner, therefore wasting champagne (-)

       Some occasions call for both high- and low-quality champagnes; the cheap stuff is for opening in a celebratory manner and the good stuff is for drinking. I've actually seen this at wedding receptions.
