Japanese Vintage Sake-Serving Robot

If you've got 1,050,000 Yen ($8,722) to spare, how about a handmade sake serving robot from Japan? Made out of cherrywood and porcelain, these things are handmade and crafted over 40 tireless days and 40 sleepless nights.

The Karakuri Automata was originally made hundreds of years ago during the Edo period of Japan (1603 to 1867), pre-dating such robots as Doraemon, Astroboy, and Gundam—only one of which serves you sake.
