GTOlover, I agree - actually this is one of the last places I would want to see as a venue for robotic technology. It doesn't make a quality of life improvement by having robots and doesn't warrant the expense. Besides, bartenders are like hairdressers - people want to talk to them. And regarding the argument that a robot can better judge a person's blood alcohol content, if a robot thinks the person has drank too much - how effective is he going to be in talking the person into taking a cab or getting one of his buddies to take him home?

Of course I still go through a checkout line that has a real checker at the grocery store...

Cool, but I won't be leaving a tip anytime soon. Part of the bartender/patron interaction is the need to shmoze with him/her. Then leave a nice tip!

@apresher - I get what you mean. I myself was expecting fluid smooth robot action like you see in the cartoons. But this is a good start nonetheless.

Interesting post.  But in the video, I was expecting some spectacular "shaking" segment with the robot.
