Asahi’s Beverage Bot

While perusing the web for interesting robotics news and tidbits, I came across a short (and admittedly outdated) article over at NewScientist regarding Japanese beverage maker Asahi. According to the article, Asahi recently gave away 1000 small robots that not only can keep 6 aluminum beverage cans cold, but can also open the containers and pour out the contents.

The article goes on to include some contrasting comments from robotics researchers about the beverage bots and the Asahi promotion, which makes the article worth a quick read. (Source: NewScientist) – [Jeff James]
