We first brought you the remote controlled beer robot here
Not to be outdone, Japan also has produced a wine and hor'devours tasting robot.
The robot sends out an infrared light to test the chemical composition of the wine and then details the name, variety and what foods would go well with it.
The robot is with flaws, as it determined a reporter was prosciuitto.
The makers of the robot hope to have it used at wineries in the future, as the robots can determine the information without opening up a cork or tasting the wine.
Wineries however, may disagree, as a perk of the job is to drink wine all day long to "test" flavors, I know I would be disappointed.
