Finally, a robot to fetch a beer

Fellow robot builders have heard it a million times: "Can you make a robot that can fetch me a beer?" Well, since beer tastes like reindeer pee to me, my answer is a firm "No". But, beer drinkers can now rejoice because the Asahi Brewery is giving away 5,000 FULLY STOCKED refrigerator robots capable of removing the can and pouring the brew automatically. Now, if we can just automate the obnoxious belching process.......

Magnus Wurzer of Roboexotica emailed a couple of additional links to the beerbots which have been sitting in my inbox with several other stories I haven't gotten to yet. And if anybody is an expert on achohol and robots, it would be Magnus. :)

After looking at the robot, I'm far more interested to know how Roger knows what reindeer pee tastes like.

First off I feel I should point out that as a Brit I am aware that our beer actually tastes of something, and actually has a reasonable amount of alkeehall in it. I know, we are lucky.

However, ISTR that some Northern types do drink reindeer piss, as it's a way of er... processing hallucinogenic mushrooms.

Er... um er... something about robots. I've got a cold and am not thinking clearly. Sorry
