Maybe robots won’t kill us all after all. There are some signs of a coming utopia… robots that pour beer for you for instance. That’s right, things are looking up thanks to robots like the PR2 here who makes sure that you have a beer as soon as your mug is empty.


Beer PR2 robot
When you are sitting and enjoying the beer that a robot has just served you one day, you will have the fine folks at Cornell University’s Personal Robotics Lab to thank. This PR2 robot from Willow Garage is assisted by a Kinect 3D camera and a database of 3D videos. It gauges your possible reactions and adjusts accordingly.

In other words, if you move your cup, it won’t pour your beer on the table. No wasted beer means more for you. Just one question… Who drinks beer out of a coffee mug?
