Wine Tasting Robot Thinks People Taste Like Bacon
September 29th, 2006
While NEC was showing off their cute little robot, capable of “tasting” wines (using its built-in) photospectrometer to the Associated Press, they got just a little more than they bargained for…
When a reporter’s hand was placed against the robot’s taste sensor, it was identified as prosciutto. Subesequently, a cameraman was mistaken for bacon.
I guess that Old Glory robot insurance might come in handy afterall.
