Mr Asahi, the robotic barman, is touring the UK serving draught beer and de-capping bottles of beer for punters.
And he’s quick. According to research, the average customer has to wait up to 15 minutes to be served at a bar by a regular bartender.
Mr Asahi consistently serves people in under two minutes – with a robotic smile to boot. What’s more, unlike mortals, he also doesn’t require a loo or lunch break.
The robot was created by eight engineers in 200 hours using a combination of robotics and animatronics. His arms were built in Japan and have a six-axis functionality enabling him to perform 60 repeatable functions per minute.
