Robots bartenders in Berlin. As one of the founders says, "there's a lot of inter-member conversation." Please, touch my monkey. Link via Slashdot.

How appropriately scaly.

swift, you are hard and angular, and if you were a gas, you would be inert.

I dunno. If you could program it to make me a decent, proper friggin' Old Fashioned ... NO damned soda topoff, NO damned sweet vermouth, just whiskey, sugar and bitters and a cherry for $@(k's sake (maybe muddled orange if you've got it) ... sure, I'm up for a robot bartender.

(If I sound like I'm ranting, it's because about 80% of the bartenders I encounter have no idea how to properly make this classic cocktail, which is one of my favorites. Sigh.)

Make sure it listens, nods a lot and says "Mmm hmm ... sure, I understand, pal."

As in the Slashdot discussion about this, am I the only way to immediately be reminded of the place in Back To The Future 2 with the head on the mobile TV screen that served drinks? I don't think we're gunna have that somehow.. they couldn't even predict the future in the 80s. (And we already have TVs like they had in that film)
