That's some html wizardry going on right there...

Annoying how they don't actually ever tell you what the damn thing does. You have to figure it out from the context.
If it's a joke, it's not funny or well done.

dystopia of drink serving droids.

What would be a dystopia about having droids who serves cocktails? I'd call that a utopia.

Great title for the post!

The first version I saw of this concept was The Bar Monkey, which was made by a few engineering students at Harvey Mudd College several years ago.

I had a friend there at the time and visited relatively frequently, so I heard about all about it; to avoid selling alcohol without a license, the authorized users were supposed to pay in bottles of alcohol rather than with money.... I thought it was a clever idea and a nice practical engineering project....
