A scientist, who totally understands how much drinking alone sucks, has come up with a solution to that problem with a robot that not only will slam shots with you he’ll even toast your misery with you by clinking glasses with you as well.
Oh, and his name is Drinky, because of course that’s what you would name a drinking robot.
South Korean inventor Eunchan Park explains how he came to create such a valuable life companion…
On Christmas in 2012, I drank Soju (Korean alcohol) alone because I had no girl friend at that time. Drinking alone was definitely terrible!! So I couldn’t drink anymore.
Lastly, I put an extra glass in front of me and poured Soju into it. And then, I cheered by myself with the glass of Soju, as though there was someone in front of me.
Surprisingly, after that, the taste became totally to be changed!!!!!! WOW!!!
So, I could finally find the secret of taste of alcohol totally depends on existence of partner.
This is why I made this robot.
He even glows red after slamming home his alcohol like any good drinking buddy would.
Here he is in action. I want one.
