Move Over Bartender, There Are Now “Beer Serving Robots”

Beer Bots

I know the Terminator movies suggest we should all fear robots (as they will eventually attempt to annihilate the human race), but it is kind of hard to hate on robots when they bring you a nice, cold beer.

Engineers at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory have created robots that do just that. The robots were presented recently at the Robotics Science and Systems conference. And while the creators of the robots stress that these robots can deliver any sort of supplies like medicine in a battlefield or food in a war-torn country – what they used in their presentation was beer, because of course!

As you can see in the video below, there is a large robot who works like the bartender who distributes beer to two smaller robots (waiters) who than take the drink to you.

The video explains the science of it all, which is pretty cool:

Not sure if you are supposed to tip the robots, so bring a book “input” just in case:
