Hello everyone, my name is Bar Bot, and I have a problem

Ryan Block, @ryan
Bar Bot

As robots patiently seek coadunation with their human counterparts, it only makes perfect sense that we begin designing them to mimic the finer parts of our own behavior. Like alcoholism and panhandling, for instance. Creepily misanthropic, the Bar Bot's primary objective is beer consumption, which it accomplishes by begging passersby for money. When it's collected enough dough for a brew, it orders one up from the bar (someone still has to hand it to the Bar Bot, though) which it proceeds to drink; only then will the Bar Bot interact with you outside of asking for money or booze. Kind of like going to a singles night, if you think about it.
