Robot bartender listens, makes jokes

We've got plenty of robots more than happy to get behind the bar for a shift, but we wish they could be a little more personable as they make our gin tonic with soulless precision. We're not talking about dancing on the bar or anything, but we all know how therapeutic a long talk with your local bottleman can be (we prefer Lloyd at the Overlook). Enter the University of Saarland's barbot, which understands voice commands and will mix you a drink while telling ingredient-specific jokes (let's hope this feature plays better in German than it would in English) -- it'll even even tell you the alcohol content of your libation. Thanks though, we'll decide for ourselves when enough is enough (unless there's also robo-bouncer present).
