beer bots.


the world's greatest invention? introducing the beer pouring robot from japanese beer company asahi. the robot can hold and chill a six pack and 2 mugs. with the push of a button, the robot retrieves a can, opens it and proceeds to pour you a perfect glass -- all while speaking to you and updating you on its progress. you can purchase your own robot for $799.

i was at once amazed by the idea and seduced by the cuteness, but after watching a few videos of senor robocco in action i realized i can drink a beer faster than the thing can pour one. also, its voice would quickly induce slow-poured drunken violence. the commericals are great in a entirely confusing way.

it may be slow, but it's still genius.
