Cocktail Conversation at the Annual Cocktail Robot Awards
ACRA - 3rd Category, Cocktail Conversation:
The AAACGD or Awesome Automated Artificial Communication Generating Device, which was designed by students Christian Perstl and Michael Wirnsperger of FH Joanneum Graz, stimulated human conversation by applying controversial fingerprint-recognition technology.
Phishing for fingerprints with the promise of free drinks, the device furtherly camouflaged it's evil purpose by issueing confusing fortune-cookie-like statements.
I heard it is already nominated for the next local Big Brother Awards.
