You know what's great? Getting a bottle of your favorite beer out of the refrigerator. You know what's even better? Having a robot do it for you. Robotics firm Willow Garage developed a robot that will not only get your beer for you, but also has beer brand and face recognition abilities. "Order" a beer online and the robot will go to the refrigerator, select the correct brand, bring you the beer, and, most importantly, won't let go of it until it sees your face. This means that your friends who were too lazy to order their own beer from the robot will not be able to steal your beer once it arrives. It will even open it for you! Man seems to have a new best friend.
