…Robots like drinking wine too?

Wine Robot

NEC System Technologies has developed a robot that tastes wine, can name the brand from a tiny sip, tell if that specific bottle has gone bad, and recommend a complementary cheese to go with each variety. Using an infrared spectrometer in its left arm, the robot fires a beam of infrared light, and analyzes the reflected light in real time to determine the chemical composition. The two foot tall green and white prototype can even tell you a thing or two about the taste, such as being a buttery chardonnay or a full-bodied shiraz. Too bad it doesn’t actually drink the wine and then act robotically drunk after it polishes off a bottle or two.
