Looking for a bartender who won't drink up all the brews and slack off when you need him? Japan's Asahi Breweries has the answer: the company's robot bartender can open a can of beer and pour it into a glass, guaranteeing a perfect head each time. And the bot's body is a fridge that holds a six pack. As part of a promotion, Asahi is giving away 5,000 of the bots. Unfortunately, it's a Japan-only deal, so if you want a robot bartender of your own, you'll either have to hop on a plane, or see if you can hire the Motoman RoboBar, who we hear is looking for some work just about now.
