Robot Bartender leaves Koreans shaken, not stirred

This is for real. The T-Rot (for Thinking Robot) is a fully automated robot bartender who is working at a new pub in Busan, Korea. He/She/It can engage in casual conversation with patrons and serve up drinks. Three dimensional sensors in the bot's 'skin' allow it to "feel" the weight, dimensions, and pressure of objects it touches and picks up accurately. It hasn't yet been connected to SkyNet, but we're pretty sure Schwarzenegger is toiling away in his sunny Cali Governor's office to figure out how, since he's really gotten tired of politics and wants to go back to kicking robotic butt.
