Very nice Paul,
It would need some modification to target more than a single receiver  
within a given volume which is an interesting problem when you think about it. 
Putting determination the receiver location aside, I would assume the goal  
would be to solve for  azimuth angle, elevation angle and initial velocity  
to minimize the kinetic energy of the can when it reaches the  receiver.
I guess when you think about it, if one expects the receiver (hand) to  
exist on a given horizontal plane, then with the calculation of azimuth  the 
problem has been reduced to the simple 2D problem presented in high  school 
physics texts.   Of course you might have to take in to account  maximum 
height of projectile being limited to ceiling height, so you might need  variable 
velocity on the projectile complicating the machine just a bit.
Maybe one is better served by walking over to the fridge.
