NEC robot taster

Well, it’s better than chicken, I suppose. NEC has got together with Mie University to design a robot taster, who can chomp on wine, cheese, meats and canapes and then tell you what they are. Why? Oh, just for the pure robotic fun of it, I daresay.

However, there’s a flaw. Apparently when one journalist put his hand in the robot’s mouth, it identified him as… bacon. And a cameraman was described as prosciutto. Come the robot revolution, it’s good to know that us humans will be sizzling away on giant grills, ready for a splash of ketchup. If Doctor Who nick that plotline for the next series, my lawyers will be in touch…
