Japanese Beer-pouring Robot Friend

If you were looking for a robotic friend who would pour beer into your mug when you are feeling lonely, you might want to take a look at the Japanese Beer-pouring Robot Friend.

Though the video has been online for quite some time, it doesn’t hurt to take a look at the robot’s clumsy efforts at pouring beer into the mug.

The short video reveals a rather smug-looking robot confidently pouring beer from a can into a mug, while most of it gets spilled. What’s really funny is the way the woman hollers in Japanese, probably trying to ‘instruct’ her robotic friend to be a little careful while handling the frothy liquid. Perhaps this robot is an allusion to the fact that there may be several things that machines can do, but sometimes we need human presence in some of the simplest activities if we don’t want things to go wrong.

You could also go ahead and take a look at the R2-D2 Beer Can Cooler, which would be great to use during summers. We had also written about Google’s Own Beer brand, which caused quite a bit of media flutter many months ago. Meanwhile, if you feel lonely and desire the company of a similar robotic friend, you might as well go to the nearest bar and have a talk with human bar tender, while he expertly fills your mug with beerv without spilling a drop.
