This robot will gladly pour you a beer

This one robot is out to top all other robots. Not only will he pour you a beer, but the little guy tries to anticipate if you’re about to move your glass so the beer doesn’t end up soaking your jeans. Thanks to the brains at Cornell’s Personal Robotics Lab, the robot has been primed to succeed in the bar scene with a database of 3-D videos and  a Microsoft Kinect camera.

This robo-bar tender will anticipate your movements and adapt using artificial intelligence very similar to Google’s algorithms that autocomplete your web search. I really hope these robots catch on. I’d love to be served by one.
