Robot bartenders are nothing new, but rarely does one shut down drunks as adorably as SOBEaR here. Built as a "robot friend for anyone who does not know their own limits, or has problems controlling themselves," the cuddly little bot dispenses drinks based on the user's blood-alcohol level -- you breathe into his face, and he pours the right ratio of cranberry to fun vodka into your glass. Of course, that implies that there's a pre-programmed max BAC in the code somewhere, so we're guessing some hardcore party panda mods are soon to come. Video after the break.
