Our long wait is over:

On May 18, buildup Co., Ltd. unveiled the Tamanoi Vinegar Robot, the world’s first robot designed to make presentations about vinegar.

Huzzah!

    That is one sinister looking robot. Must be some seriously hardcore vinegar that he represents.

    Well, I guess we got to start some place…even if it’s a vinegar robot.

    I would have thought a porno robot would have made it first.

    Perhaps there is still some hope left for humanity that vinegar bot got first dibs.

    THANK GAWD!!!1!!

    I’ve been worried for years this would never come to pass, but it has.

    Now I just have to worry about the robot which explains the meaning of life which I am sure is NOT 42.

    The downside is that so many people who earn their livings making vinegar presentations will soon be out of work.

    I think it’s interesting, though, that they didn’t create a robot to give presentations about robots. But who can understand the Eastern mind, eh?

    Do porno robots know a lot about vinegar, then? There actually is a sex tout robot…

    I had not even thought about this. Yet another innocent casualty of globalization and automation.

    And how do you know I’m not?

    Why does he have a blue button right at his crotch? Is this how he’ll present you with vinegar…. in your salad or something? How does one present with vinegar anyway?

    Interesting appearance – the big nun like skirt, the blue button in the crotch, the giant uni-boob on the front, and the baton.
    Obviously the design was deliberate but for what reason- couldn’t one of those innocuous white Japanese robots have been an effective vinegar spokesbot?

    The video link in the story is highly recommended.

    Well, the baton makes sense at least – it could be a pointer for its vinegar presentations. The rest, I just cannot explain.

    The video was cool, but I wish it had sound.
