Finally, a Robotic Beer Butler!

If you're looking for all the brains of a bartender combined with the good looks of R2-D2, mental_floss might just have what you need: the Asahi BeerBot. For a paltry $800, ThisNext is reporting that this child-proof mobile fridge will store up to 6 canned beverages for you, and will even open and pour them into glasses whenever you require it. Sounds like a neat party trick (and an easy way for a robot to make friends!). And while there's no word on whether future versions will hold a beer funnel for you, subject you to peer pressure, or cut you off after a certain number of drinks, it is comforting to know that world's top engineers are working hard to solve humanity's biggest problems.
