Wine Tasting Robot Thinks People Taste Like Bacon

by


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…

robot bacon

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.

    Sounds about right – I remember reading an article about a tribe of cannibals that referred to humans as ‘long pigs’ due to the taste… This would seem to corroborate the theory.
