Wine Tasting Robot Thinks People Taste Like Bacon

 |  |  |  |  |  September 29, 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…

Robot With Poor Sense of Taste

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.
