Skeptical Investigation

A Beer-Serving Robot

90c2e699597265d9aac3bef6572cbdbeWe’re lovers. You know that. But every now and again, something comes across our desks that just seems... suspicious. Because of the tremendous material upside to all our lives if these claims pan out, we at times put ourselves in harm’s way to investigate. Albeit skeptically.

We call it: Skeptical Investigation. (Trademark pending.)

THE CLAIM
There’s this robot. Goes by the name of Chassis. It’s made with parts reclaimed from a vintage auto-repair lubrication station and motorcycle mufflers. More importantly, it serves beer. And wine. And cocktails. Why, yes, it is available for parties...

THE INVESTIGATION
Our resolute agent gamely attended a soiree bartended by Chassis. Within minutes, the candy-apple-red bot (shaped like Rosie from The Jetsons) approached.

First, our investigator grabbed a cup from the machine’s spatula-like hands. Then, he tapped the side of the spout (conveniently located in front) with his cup. Like magic, beer began to flow. It was a bit foamy, but it also came from a freaking robot. Well, technically a keg inside a robot... but still.

THE VERDICT
It’s definitely a party pleaser. Our researcher did not leave thirsty. And so, we hail our new bartender overlords. Let’s just hope this thing never becomes sentient...
