Video of a beer-pouring robot

Whether it's a or an external , evidence abounds that beer and technology make a natural marriage.

In Japan, known for its love of both subjects, Asahi has apparently come up with a robot that pours beer, as shown in this YouTube clip. As much as we applaud the ingenuity, however, we must point out a couple of important bugs.

The robot overpoured significantly, wasting a goodly amount of precious commodity. Second, and most egregious, the slothful bot took more than 2 minutes to complete the task.

We don't know about you, but that kind of inexcusable lag is a deal-breaker for us.
