Ideal for friends who complain about the service no matter how fancy the establishment and how attentive the server. A robot waiterchanges the whole game; now you can only blame the nerd who madethe bot. Also, this dude dates back (like all good things do) to the ’80s.

Because many of us are farmers in our minds, but in reality we really don’t want to deal with getting dirty, “pruning and desuckering” vines in a vineyard. Thanks, robot.
