Hey the robot could also be fitted with a breathalyzer to cut you off when your BAC gets too high! And if they can make a good Long Island Iced Tea, I'm all for it!

My job is safe, you can't teach a robot to check MO every couple of hours. The robot is over qualified for the rest of my day.

Default I, Robot

It displays a man or woman's face (your choice)? This would fool exactly the same demographic that thinks Civics are faster with wings on back. No, no, I want Robbie saying "Danger, Will Robinson!" during the entire process. When the drink is presented, I want "We are the BAR, you will ingest this tasty intoxicant...Resistance is futile." Because really, 12 to 14 seconds is enough to be slightly-funny-to-mildly-irritating, no more. The best and most natural thing of all is to bring back Max Headroom. Also, the video for Dire Straights' Money for Nothing could be constantly played on request as a screen-in-screen feature.



You can't flirt with it?! WTF lame-O kind of defense is THAT, Mr. Trendy NYC Club Owner? Who really believes that flirting with a female, working a bar, in New York is gonna get you laid?! Please refer to faster Civics, above. HAL9000 also can't water your drink if it doesn't like the look of you. It can't tell you your party is too big to sit at the bar, or be a surly b17ch if it's boyfried just walked in with a new slimline toaster.



Why is no one building robots to do the crappy grunt work of restaurants and bars? Surely, robots could save money in the kitchen and cleanup arenas, and bring virtually every establishment in the nation into compliance with current immigration law. Or will illegal hispanics still be the dishwashers and bus-boys? I know someone out there is prepared to argue that we can't credibly control our borders on the basis that there are jobs robots just won't take.



What do you do if the barkeep offers you your choice of red drink or blue drink? Which drink do you take? And if we do this with bartenders, do we have to bring back Peter Weller and Maximilian (from Disney's Black Hole) to be bouncers?

The job of a good bartender is to make the customer feel as if they are being properly attended too. I want my drinks a little strong and will tip generously for this service. Think robo-tender will do this for me??????

So I'm guessing my drink will be delivered by a vacuum delivery system like the banks use. The canister would have a picture of a leggy waitress or buff waiter...patronÂ’s choice?

Gosh! The future! At the risk of sounding cynical...



Most days at work, after saving one more robot from taking a "dump" (whoever said they don't need bathroom breaks has never worked with one) I travel to my breakroom where a faceless yet attractive machine I believe they call a "vending" machine, gives me the choice of about 18 different coffee or hot chocolate mixtures at the push of a button. Fast, efficient and not that bad. I must say though, the barista at my neighborhood Starbucks/Caribou is far more fun to talk to or ogle at.



So tell me, what is new here?
