Bartending Robot Mixes Drinks, Helps Ruin Lives

Wired's Nextfest is about to begin in New York City, ushering in a weekend of gadget geeks walking the mean streets and getting lost.

The robot actually works properly, bad news for attendees' livers.

Anyone else notice that last little sound byte:

"If I wasn't bolted to the floor, I'd go home with you tonight."

Who decided that was a good thing for a robot to say? What kind of advertising is that, anyways?

"Our sales team is sleezy and likes to take advantage of horribly drunk girls. So we built this robot so we can focus on getting our game on."
