Mr. Asahi, the robot bartender

blip.tv got a chance to go to the Asahi Beer Brewery and check out their eponymous robotic barman, Mr. Asahi. He only serves Asahi, unfortunately, and there’s a great deal of chest thumping about how his hyper-complex robotic innards took “eight engineers two hundred man hours to put together” (in other words, a Bank Holiday work week), but I look forward to a future in which I am drafted Heffeweiszens with micron perfect heads by robotic bartenders. The first time one goes into kill mode on me for drunkenly forgetting to pay my tab? Well, not so much.
