System mixes drinks so you don't have to

Heaven is only $2,600 away.

As impressive as the " Vin au Verre " was and is, we always thought it was a bit, well, low-tech. There's no law, after all, that says bars can't join the digital age.

Enter "MyFountain," a wonder machine that stores up to a dozen beverages, all accessible (and, more important, dispensible) by a touch-screen color LCD that features pictures of said libations. Great for beginning barkeeps.

It will even mix drinks according to your requests, according to BornRich, a feature that would come in increasingly handy for an imbibing host as the night wears on. And in case you've forgotten the specs for bitters in a Rob Roy, the bar-bot includes a PC that can be used to look up recipes online. The whole system costs $2,575, which may seem like a lot at first--but consider how much money you'll save in spilled booze.
