Cheers! Meet Drinky, The Drinking Robot.

Now you will never have to drink alone again.

So, it’s Wednesday and weekend’s a couple of days away. You wanted to have a few drinks. You call around to see who’s free, but everyone’s busy. So you end up drinking alone.

But an empty space at the table ain’t fun.

Fortunately, there’s a chance you might not ever have to again, if Robot Drinky, the alcohol-drinking robot has anything to say about it.

Created by South Korean inventor Eunchan Park, this Bro-Bot is the perfect robotic solution for solo drinkers who want to share their favorite tipple with a companion but don’t have one available.

It will clink glasses with you, looks around, give a thumbs up and dance, down his drink and really create the feeling of drinking with a real companion. Its cheeks even glow red after knocking back each drink.

And the best thing, you’ll never have to worry about him getting out of control and it won’t vomit on the floor after having one too many.

Sadly, Drinky is a one-off robot. There are no plans for production at the moment.
