Beer Bot will pour you a cold one


We love beer and we love robots, so guessing how we feel about this robotic bartender should be a no-brainer. Known as Mr. Asahi, the robot opens bottles and pours beer while taking your orders with aplomb and a jovial British accent. It also has a customized lazy susan with slots for bottles and notches for the robot’s hand to grasp.

Amazingly, this is not Asahi’s first beer pouring robot. That one requires you to do most of the leg work, though, so this one is a marked improvement. Best of all, it won’t ignore you when a person more attractive than you comes into the bar, and it won’t snub you for leaving a lousy tip. We now fear alcohol fueled robot rampages… they get more human every day. Video after the break.

    I love that beer. but I can never pronounce it correctly they allways bring hot sake instead, no worries its all good! if I point to it on the menu they bring it. If your lucky your local grocer will carry it.

    This isn’t new. Motoman has robo-bartender that’s been around for a few years now. It can do beer and mixed drinks. There are a couple of video clips at the bottom of the page.
