A Robot Bartender: Great for Slow Service AND Walking Out on Your Bill
Robots will eventually take over the world. In fact, they have in some countries – like Robotlandia. Some guys at a Search-based Planning Laboratory have made a robot who maps out spatial areas and program navigational commands to tell this robot where to go. In the example, the robot is a bartender who can get you a Coke and a snack. So I guess the robot is a really a prohibition-era bartender – I want a goddamn pint of ale! The robot can also speak a bit, but not enough to tell my boss about the sexual harassment she (I’m assuming it’s a she) has received from me. That’s what you get for serving me a Coke!
