Everyone's really in awe of the
belching burping Robosapien robots. The original robot's burps were really funny, and the new V2's burps have even inspired some fans to produce videos featuring a Robosapien burping chorus. But, how would you really get a robot to burp? Simple, all you need is a robot bartender that serves up lots of beer. . .
Asahi Breweries just announced a special promotion for their low-malt beer (see link below). They've designed a robot beer refrigerator and will be giving away a total of 5,000 of the robots, fully stocked with beer, to applicants selected by a lottery drawing.
Applicants have to collect 36 seals from special Asahi beer cans. We're assuming that applicants will drink the beer, but we have run across fans that would buy the beer just to get the seals and through away the beer. What a waste. The contest period runs from February 20th through May 22nd.
Push the robots start button and it opens the can, tilts the glass, and pours the beer with a perfect head every time. The refrigerator section of the robot can cool six 350 ml cans and two beer mugs.
Asahi is only running this promotion in Japan, so don't run out to buy lots of Asahi beer hoping you'll win the beer robot. But, if you happen to live in Japan - you and your Robosapien should go for it!
