Beer-Pouring Bot Video

In January New Scientist reported about a beer-pouring robot given away to customers by Japanese beer company Asahi - quoting me on the future of home robotics.
Now Robot Gossip posted a video a user has put on YouTube, in which the robot takes a refridgerated beer out of his own body, opens the can and pours it for his master (and chatters away in Japanese, which, alas, I don't understand).
And he's making only the tiniest mess as he pours and pours into the foam.
Also not the most time-effective beer-pouring I've seen - nevertheless I'd love to have one!
