Asahi’s Beer Pouring Robots

asahi beer robot promotionBy David Ponce

Here’s a match made in heaven: beer and robots. For most of the world, it’s a match we are left to simply dream of (you know, slave bots bringing you a cold one, instead of the usual “Get it yourself!”) If you live in Japan however, you should know that Asahi is running a promotion where they’ll be giving away 5,000 fully stocked refrigerator robots. What do these lovely creatures do?

Well, aside from stocking and cooling up to six cans of beer and two mugs, upon the press of a button, the machine will open up a can, and pour in into the mug with a perfect head every time.

To win one, contestants must collect 36 seals found on specially marked Asahi beers. Of course, you don’t have to drink the beer… but then you’d probably be missing the point.

    It only stores and pours the beer. You still have to get up off your lazy fat ass and put the glass\beer in its hands.

    The liquid on display is not actually beer. Asahi red, blue and gold is actually `hopatschu` which is a beer like beverage made with minimal malt content. Whether the robot could pour a good `beer` is the real question. And to DOMO, belive me as a Jap resident, this nation is twenty years behind the rest of the world, including Romania when it comes to technology! Believe it! It is a nation of slaves controlled by old baby boomers who still listen to the Carpenters. Thats why robots that pour beer are considered a worthwhile venture. Give any Western university students $500 bucks and they would build something 100 times better!!

    finaly now my life is perfect! but how long did it take them to make it? my estimate is 42 years.

    Sounds like a product for those who have more money than good sense.

    Thousands are dying in Iraq because the greed and self-centeredness of one country doesn’t have the enough respect for their fellow man to reduce energy consumption, and this company builds a frivouless tool that opens a beer the a person too lazy to open it him/herself. Go figure.

    Does it fetch the beer from the shops as well ??

    I just watched this video, well it looks like somebody managed to create a robot that pours beer into mug from a standard sized can…badly. What if you are drinking from bottles, using a different sized can/mug/glass, also having watched a video the beer comes with waaaay too much head on to be enjoyable. Plus you could pour your own in less time AND save money.

    I’ve been using credit cards for quite a while already and I’ve built a good credit history. But I feel that I do not enjoy all the opportunities of my credit card, using it for offline purchases only. There are lots of web sites where you can buy things with credit cards and it saves your time and effort. But, is it secure to buy online? If yes, I’m going to apply for card at
