Robot Gossip: Robot Bartender Sells Real Estate

Robot Gossip mistakenly calls this the 'world’s first robotic bar-tender' ... apart from the lots at roboexotica over the years - i wonder how all the industrial efforts from, say korea, which were among the posts on roboexotica-mailing-list in the last couple months, or Motoman's robobar, which in fact looks A LOT like the 'Omniyat Robo-Bar', could not be noticed by the author.
not to mention the notorious barmonkey or the more recent student-project creatively named 'The Automated Bartender ' ...

update: this IS actually the Motoman robo-bar .. i only noticed the logo pretty late!
another comment from the tech side: with two arms in play it is a bit like what FANUC-Lenzing showed at Intertool 2004. the monitor with face on top, on the other hand reminds a lot of Ernie made by Honeybee Robotics (who was the first robot bartender to my knowledge) in the 80s!

Yes, but can these other robot bartenders sell condos to millionaires?
